Dividers work the way they are supposed to. You do not seem to
understand what that way is. I invite you to read the following document:
  http://www2.lm-sensors.nu/~lm78/cvs/lm_sensors2/doc/fan-divisors

Hopefully this will help you understand how it works.

If you use a 9 pulse/rev fan (didn't know these existed...) instead of
standard 2 pulse/rev, you should add the following line to your
configuration file:

  conpute fan1 @*2/9, @*9/2
