Hi Craig,

No one ever requested this, so it's never come up.  However ...

There's a decent chance that FreeIPMI just isn't handling the get sensor
thresholds error correctly.  If the call fails, it should just fall
through and use the thresholds listed in the SDR.  Perhaps its an
unique/unexpected error code.

Could you send the --debug output that shows the error.  You can limit
the output by only specifying one sensor w/ -r.
