Do you know why they went? Otherwise they'll go again when replaced. Cross referenced to something like NTE? Triac is not a big deal that chip might be.

Yeah, while the Triac can be second sourced, the IC is a sole source part. Try contacting ST micro sales directly for an engineering sample device (type "sample" in the search box on their site). Tell them you are responsible for designing a power supply. You don't know the details, you are just the purchaser and the engineer is not presently available. If that don't work, try the same line on a local distributor. Suggest your part might justify orders in the 100-300 piece range if the project works out. Have it shipped to your work address.
You're lucky to even know the part number. Often OEMs remove the markings to make it even harder for you to fix it yourself.

L-Tronik-Austria in Graz, <http://www.lta.at/ , list the VIPER 20 A for Euro 6,50 (+20% VAT) and the VIPER 20 A DIP for Euro 4,26 (+20% VAT).
Although some people may confuse Austria with Australia, Graz is actually not very far from the North Pole. They will probably mail you one or two chips by air-mail letter.
