[lm-sensors] lmsensors and gkrellm

I'm hoping somebody here can enlighten me.
I'm running OpenSUSE 10.3 on an Acer Travelmate laptop with an Intel Core Duo
I finally figured out how to get lmsensors running and configured so that I
could get my hdd temps showing up in gkrellm.
I'm confused about something though ....
Prior to getting this working GKrellM showed under CPU temp:
with corresponding temps (dual core processor)
Since fixing lmsensors however it now shows two extra entries:
Also with corresponding temp readings.
BUT the readings are not the same. The coretemp readings are several degrees
lower than the thermal_zone readings, and the two cores are often showing
different temps, whereas in the thermal_zone readings, the cores are nearly
always showing the same temp.
I'm assuming the coretemps are what is being detected by lmsensors, so what is
reading the thermal_zone temps?
Which readings are likely to be the most accurate ones i.e. the ones I should
take notice of?
EDIT: Just as an example ...
right now the thermal_zone reading is showing temps of 51 and 51. The coretemp
reading is showing 45 and 41. That's a significant difference when it comes
to knowing when to be concerned about a particular temp.
If anyone can explain to me what the difference is between the thermal_zone
readings and the coretemp readings, and which of the two is considered more
accurate/reliable, I'd appreciate it.
Thanks in advance,
