I made a patch for dstat thermal plugin that now works with the new system path of thermal sensor device. The patched file is on github in the master branch of my fork of dstat and works on my laptop. The patch is not tested on other systems and as I'm newbie in both linux and python programming is to be considered EXPERIMENTAL so not recommended for inexperienced users. You try it at your own risk.
That said I also made a modified sysmonitor script that works with my patched version of dstat_thermal plugin wich displays the current temperature of the cpu.

modified dstat_thermal plugin:

You can put the modified plugin in the .dstat folder il your home directory and it should allow you to use it on newest system.

I wrote a mail to the mantainer and filed a bug report on dstat's original repository but so far no news.

Tested on asus n53s sandy bridge laptop with ubuntu 11.10 and all latest patches.
