Bad Caps strike again

Our 'Revision A' G5 imac is playing up again. It has started turning itself off at random. The problem lies with those
cylindrical things with bulging and leaking 'x' marked tops.

Two years ago we had to have the midplane [motherboard] replaced after a similar fault - as you can see here:

I am annoyed. The prospect of having to do without the computer for several days is frightening!
I suppose I should be grateful that it happened now though, as the extended warranty expires in 3 weeks.
Other people are experiencing the same problem.
The lesson I have learned is
NEVER BUY A 'REVISION A' APPLE COMPUTER!
