Not entirely as I've learned, though they might be in your case. Also,
there might be an imbalance in the bus because some signals are not being
terminated? I'm speaking entirely out of ignorance here, so smite me if
I'm wrong.

You might try patching the cracked resistor pack somehow, perhaps
bypassing it with the appropriately valued resistor.
