I also have been getting SMART errors in my /var/log/messages (not related to temperature), however, I have done physical checks on them and they come up fine. I have 3x500GB in RAID5 and 2x250GB in RAID1, and they all have SMART errors. I just ended up turning off the SMART daemon and now just rely on /proc/mdstat. I know this isn't safe to do, but I feel that the SMART daemon is misreporting.

it seems firmware bugs are quite common, you just don't notice as much in windows because windows doesn't know about smart

i have found a way to configure acpid to ignore certain attributes, i documented it in a post on my blog


acpi, smart
