Is that trap from the box itself, or from something on the network? Hard to tell, but if you increase the logging level in snmpd.conf you can at least see what community string it is complaining about.
Between AIX 5.1 adn 5.3, the default SNMP on the OS changed from SNMPv1 to SNMPv3, but netview would not start at all if that were the problem. So presumaby the upgrade recognized that you were running v1 and left it that way.
The most likely thing, I think, since you say that the community in /etc/snmpd.conf is the same as the global default, but you DON't say that it is public, is that your default is not public and the dpid2 agent is trying to start. There thing that starts that up assumes a default of public. You can just disable the startup of that agent and see if it goes away.
From my notes.....
The hostmibd daemon is an snmp subagent (a smux agent) on AIX which supplies the answers to SNMP queries of variables defined in the MIB II Hosts mib section - system information about disk, memory, cpu, etc. This daemon requires dpid2 to be up first, to handle communication between hostmibd and snmpd. If dpid2 is not up, hostmibd keeps trying forever. The hostmibd daemon uses an SNMP query to find out what port to talk to dpid2 on. It uses the community string of 'public' to make this query unless a different one is specified in its startup in /etc/rc.tcpip.

I recently upgraded from AIX 5.1 to 5300.5 and then applied the FixPack5. Netview seems to be up and running fine, but I am now receiving:
1173366569 4 Thu Mar 08 10:09:29 2007 NV-HOSTNAME A IBM Incorrect Community Name (authenticationFailure Trap).
The community name in /etc/snmpd.conf is the same as the Global Default and I am able to snmpwalk the server. Any Idea's
