Just ran into this (and -D openipmi didn't work for me) and figured out
that the /etc/init.d/lm_sensors script loads the ipmi_si and ipmi_msghandler
modules on our Sun machines. I didn't realize figure out the problem for 
some time because the ipmi service itself was disabled in the runlevels
and so I didn't even think of the kernel modules :-)

Maybe a little warning from the bmc-watchdog binary when ipmi kernel modules
are loaded when running on a Sun machine could help others to avoid this?
