No, not without more testing.  At least some of the reports of hot
cards seem to just be that other things in the systems are getting hot
and transfering heat to the card(s).  Windows may be doing a better
job of power management in general, so the fact that the card doesn't
get hot in Windows doesn't necessarily mean that the PCMCIA drivers
are at fault.

The 'cardctl status' command will show what voltages are being
supplied to each socket.
