Sorry, I failed to mention versions of collectd that are used, so here they are:

# grep collectd /var/log/yum.log
Jan 04 13:19:30 Installed: collectd-4.10.4-1.fc16.x86_64
Jan 04 13:23:04 Installed: collectd-rrdtool-4.10.4-1.fc16.x86_64

Jan 04 13:23:04 Installed: collectd-sensors-4.10.4-1.fc16.x86_64

What is the proper way to report sensors module bug? Log files are
being hammered with errors all the time and are growing really big.
