Help needed with ESV Y2K Year 2000 compliance problem

Our research group has recently been informed by Evans and Sutherland
that our faithful ESV 3plus workstation is not Y2K compliant, due to a
hardware problem. We also have an Indigo R3000 which has the same
problem (same chip set). The manufacturers cannot offer a solution and
we cannot afford to replace these items at such short notice.
Can anyone offer a software patch or workaround which would keep our
workstations functioning after 31/12/1999?

Any suggestions gratefully received.
