I still have this problem on up-to-date intrepid, and it is absolutely
not clear how many files you have to edit by hand, and how many things
you have to watch for when upgrading the system to avoid your changes
For now, I created a script that I added to init.d. Every two minutes,
the script logs sensors infomation and load cycles, and sets hdparm -B
again. It works well.
I commented out the setting of hdparm (so that the script just logs) and
got a log in intrepid (up to date, a couple of days ago) that clearly
shows load cycles going up and up. I attach my log and the script that I
use for others to use.
