If you still have a 2.6.x kernel around, can you try to reboot on it and
confirm that hdd temps are correctly displayed?

I found a buggy test in the panel plugin (it checks for a X.Y kernel
version, with Y >= 5, which obviously doesn't work on a 3.0/3.1 kernel
in wheezy…). Fixing this test let the temps reappear for me. The patch
will be part of the next upload.

Regards, and merry Christmas,
