OMSA continually reports power supply issues

BTW, this is Scientific Linux 6.1 (RHEL 6.1 clone) with
srvadmin-all-6.5.0-1.1.1.el6.x86_64, running on a Dell PowerEdge R710.

And I have another pretty much identical R710 with the same setup
where this is NOT happening.  A notable difference is that one is
running on 208V instead of 120V.
