The error above is printed by some code I coulnd't test myself, because
my Macs don't support reading the CPU temperature using the the
interface the cpu plugin uses. The code is there more as a proof-of-
concept and doesn't entirely work.

You can disable the code by adding the marked line at or near line 85 of
-- 8< --
 static processor_port_array_t cpu_list;
 static mach_msg_type_number_t cpu_list_len;
 static int cpu_temp_retry_counter = 0;
 static int cpu_temp_retry_step    = 1;

That'd be great :) Also, if you'd be willing to test an updated version
of `cpu.c' that might help fix the problem and, if we're successfull,
will provide you with cpu-temperature graphs ;)
