That sensor only causes your "shift indicator light" (just the little circle with the gear you're in on your gauge cluster) to flash when the transmission fluid exceeds 115C (238F).

So like Stayer said, it's probably a combination of the oil not being quite warm enough/too warm combined with wear on the clutch packs. Automatic transmissions are very sensitive to small differences like these, after all.
