    As a side note, this is bad design from gnome-sensors-applet. They
    should definitely not plain stop just because they failed to retrieve
    the i2c_adapter name, when all the monitored values are otherwise
    available.

    See:

    lm-sensors SVN should work fine:
    http://dl.lm-sensors.org/lm-sensors/snapshots/lm-sensors-r4338-20070305.tar.bz2
    If not, please report.

    We will release it as lm-sensors 2.10.3 soon.
