Default On/off gas valves and boilovers

Do any of you with on/off gas valves have problems with boilovers? Since these things are full gas or none, wouldn't it put too much heat in and boil over?

I'm thinking of adding some gas solenoids/valves for a centralized controller but was wondering since I currently find myself adjusting the gas flow manually to control the boil.

What you can do is adjust the gas flow so that when you are at a boil it doesn't boil over. Then for the rest of your brews leave it there. You will just have to wait longer for the wort to come to a boil.
