Not necessarily -bad- advice, but limited in that it did not distinguish
that the new chipsets are not subject to the problem.

I'm running a Via Sp13000 with the newest chipset and... no problem.

More info on chipsets at Via's websites.

So the original question can only be answered when we know exactly which
chipset is on the board.
