We attempt to delete all of the temperature stuff so that rancid
does not sent out erroneous diffs, but as the vendors keep on
changing their ui output and don't tell us, we don't catch everything.

See, for example, lines like this in jrancid:
	/ backplane temperature/ && next;
	/(\s*Power supply.*), temperature/ &&
		ProcessHistory("","","","# $1\n") && next;

Tell us what type of router you have and send us sample output
showing the temperature stuff & we can attempt to fix it.  The
easiest way is sending us a .raw file so we can test the changes;
see the NOPIPE setting in rancid.conf.
