The 2N2907 isn't great at saturation beyond about 100mA, BTW, it may just be the wrong part for the job.

I read about the performance of the transistors here: http://www.robotroom.com/BipolarHBridge4.html

According to tests on the web (I included a link to one below), 2N2907s seem to work. However, based on the fact that the transistors are heating up so much, I definitely agree with you on the saturation issue. The models I used for making the H bridge never mentioned an Arduino, so the resistors recommended there are probably for a higher amplitude current.
