Great :) Could you try adjusting limits, and also provide a sample output?

Oh no! :( Not that problem again. We thought it was solved once for all...

We'd need as much details as possible about the conditions in which the problem
occurs, and first occured. Did you update lm_sensors recently? Which version
were using before? Which version are you using now? (I'd guess "latest CVS" as
the answer to the third question, but maybe you only updated the lm90.c file?)
Does the problem show only when the lm90 module is loaded (or has been loaded
since bootup)? What if you "hide" (rename, move, delete, whatever)
/etc/sensors.conf from sensors?

For which I2C address does sensors-detect pretends the adm1021 module is
required? (and for which chipset?) Do you mean that older versions of
sensors-detect never told you that, and than newer versions do?

Any log messages when the adm1021 driver crashes your machine?
