Hmm, it certainly looks like that's the case, but I have no
idea how to uninstall it.  I dont even know what it would be

In my case, "sensors" appears to be more accurate than
/proc/acpi/thermal_zone.  The kernel seems to return bogus
data there.

There is that, too.  I've got two backends, one backend is also a
frontend.. And it's the combined frontend/backend that seems to
overheat and shutdown, but it's also the one that doesn't properly
report the time through ACPI.  :(
