I'm afraid so:
I send my iBook (2.2) in three times with display errors and everytime
the motherboard was exchanged. I asked the service guy if I can expect
to come again in a couple of months and whether it wouldn't be cheaper
for them just to install a working motherboard. I got the same response
as you got: they're just gonna go on replacing the motherboard until the
guarantee runs out - even if it would be the fourth replacement
motherboard :-(
