well first of all, you could have tried to simply run the plain binary program
xfce4-sensors which -- who would expect -- links to the very same library with
al lthe hddtemp stuff inside. This executable could be seen in your
installation logs etc.

Anyway, you're right about what breaks it that uninitialized variables couldn't
be free properly with *new* versions of gcc; I didn't have any problems

Sorry to tell, moving variable declaration inside C code is *not* a solution
because of 1) variables should be declared at the beginning 2) it would not
resolve your issues when any of the mentioned else if branches would be

SVN will soon contain initialization to NULL which should work. Thanks to the
guy that pointed that out and thanks to you for reporting and all the efforts
you investigated when submitting the bugs at Debian.
