Description of problem:
System freezes completely. Scanning logs only turns up kernel null-pointer bugs
that appear to be linked in to the sensors files....see my post

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Random, but a couple of times per day. Causes file system damage when the system
has locked up and needs a hard reset.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Impossible to tell, however usually doing something fairly intensive when it
occurs, but never in the same package. Always listening to music over and NFS
shared mount at the time.

Actual results:

Expected results:

Additional info:
I'm not sure if this is an lm_sensors fault, but it seems that the last sys file
used every time is the hardware monitor file:
