Hi again.

I've solved my problem now, and since sharing knowledge is good, here's the secret key to my specific problem :O)

Actually, it was a very simple thing I did wrong. I had my thumb to high up. I had it about the same hight as the E string (I have a 4 string).

I tried arching my wrist a little more and moved the thumb down to D. Now I've been playing for 3 hour straigh and still no sign of 'thumbfatigue'.

A good side effect was that I increased my speed, and accuracy, quite considerably aswell.

Hope this help someone else with the same problem i HAD :o)
