5DII black dot fixed?

Is the black dot problem on the 5DII fixed or is it just "covered" in firmware with a corresponding white dot? Would newer bodies have it as a real hardware fix?

I just ask because my niece is getting interested in photography and since she is 11yo a 5DII would be a good size body for me to get her, she feels the 1DsII I let her use is too big (of course), she also has access to, almost, all my lenses.
