MacBook shutdowns due to dodgy heatsinks?

Various rumours around the place indicate that the spontaneous MacBook shutdowns might be due to a poorly designed heatsink. Of course the replacement heatsink is not yet available, which would probably present a significant delay if you need to get your MacBook repaired or replaced.

Apparently the workaround for the moment is to start the machine up in 1GHz mode by holding down the power switch for 5 seconds at startup.
