Problem with FCP & 1.42 GhZ G4 PowerMac?

I have heard that Final Cut Pro does not work well with a dual processor 1.42 PowerMac. Something about the software being buggy with the processor, I think. Recommendations seem to be to go with the dual 1.25. For DV editing with 2 RAIDed ATA drives will the 1.42 really be a problem or should I go with the 1.25?

At my university, we have a lab with several 1.42 G4's running FCP, Soundtrack and Motion, and we have absolutely no problems. All of these CPU's have RAIDed ATA drives connected to them, and everything works together in perfect harmony. They're pretty quiet too.
