2650 era update and (apparent) hardware errors

I recently upgraded the era firmware on one of our 2650s and the fan
dropped significantly (which is great).  I did the update using tftp
from a
laptop using the web interface.

All seems fine _but_ the system is now claiming that lots of voltages
are too
high/low and the same for temperatures - the system appears to be
working fine
and doesn't feel hot.  

It even claims that one of the PSUs isn't working though I can see that
both PSUs are working (green lights on the back).

I seem to be getting consistent results whether I look at this through
the web server running on port 1311 of the host or the web server
on the era card itself.

What have I done wrong?  My gut feeling is that the ERA is confused in
way (I can't see how all that hardware could go bad at the same time and

the physical evidence tends to contradict what the diagnostics are
