[lm-sensors] Tyan S2877 CPU Temp Erratic

Hello,
I have a Tyan S2877 motherboard. I had lm-sensors working perfectly,
but every now and then the CPU temp field, goes wrong. For instance
it was reporting around 50'C for ages, then after a reboot, it now
reports -199.75°C . Opening the box, and checking all is OK. BIOS
reports correct temp (around 48'C). Restarting multiple times, and
still can't get it to go back to report correct CPU temp.

I am using the LM85 module/code forced to use a ADT7463 chip
as this best matches my hardware. My sensors.conf and output of
sensors is shown below. NOTE, I only have one CPU in this dual
socket board.

CPU1 Temp:-199.75°C  (low  =   -71°C, high =   -73°C)

Any one seen this problem before or know a fix?
The CPU is a dual-core Opteron 265.
Thanks in advance for any help.
Paul
