Another thought, I just had.  Have you tried ipmitool or "ipmiutil"?  If
they behave the same way as FreeIPMI is on sensors, then I would get the
feeling this is a motherboard issue, not a FreeIPMI issue.  ipmiutil is
written by a fellow that works at Intel.  So if there is any project
that has had access to that motherboard and has tested it on that
motherboard, it'd be that one :-)  Do you think you could give it/them a
