This might finally fix the constant crashes we see with ipmitool on centos. I presume you can grab the RPM and apply it to our centos systems, too.

Bug Fix Advisory - RHBA-2014:1624-1
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Summary:
ipmitool bug fix update

Updated ipmitool packages that fix one bug are now available for Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 6.


Description:
The ipmitool packages contain a command line utility for interfacing with
devices that support the Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI)
specification. IPMI is an open standard for machine health, inventory, and
remote power control.

This update fixes the following bug:

* Previously, the ipmitool default timeout values signified a time period
which was too short. As a consequence, during retries, the ipmitool utility
could terminate unexpectedly with a segmentation fault, or could produce a
nonsensical error message. With this update, the ipmitool options passed from
environment variable are parsed correctly from IPMITOOL_OPTS and IPMI_OPTS
variables, IPMITOOL_* taking precedence over IPMI_* variables. As a result,
ipmitool no longer crashes in the described situation. (BZ#1147593)

Users of ipmitool are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix
this bug. After installing this update, the IPMI event daemon (ipmievd) will be
restarted automatically.
