Ah okay. I thought I needed to have a sensord or some other daemon
running for Myth to use it.

In any case, I currently can't just remove the package that provides
libsensors because the mythtv-backend package depends on it. It seems
like a bug in the mythtv-backend package because there isn't there
anything that is linked with libsensors. I'll bring this up with
Christian Marillat, the maintainer of the Debian packages I'm using.
Perhaps he can remove that dependency altogether.

Well, don't remove it just because of this particular incident,
especially because it is still not clear that there is a problem with
your code.

Yeah, I am still trying to figure out what it was. In any case it wasn't
ultra critical since everything was working with the exception of
getting backend status through MythWeb ;-)

Anyway, thanks a bunch for taking the time to read the noise.
