Spot on, thanks.  I was about to say I'm sure it wasn't installed -- I
don't normally run it due to problems on our Supermicros -- but the
driver must have been installed.  I've just checked and `service start
ipmi' on a RH5 system does trigger the failure.  It's unrelated to the
timer stopped issue, though, and I haven't noticed it causing trouble
with other freeipmi stuff, though I mostly run that remotely.
