I found the datasheet for the LB1620 and apparently the thing is 
perfectly capable of directly driving the motor windings.  I note that a 
small (10uF to 47uF) electrolytic is specified between each of the 
windings and +24 Vcc.  Were one of those to short, that would indeed 
have nasty consequences as the output of the LB1620 is via a 
complementary pair operating totem-pole fashion for each phase.

So, in absence of a readily available LB1620, I'd start with the 
per-winding caps.
