Over the Thankgiving Day holiday weekend Nokia decided to release the new E71 firmware, version 4.
The timing makes perfect sense because Thanksgiving is a North American holiday and the firmware wasn't released for the E71-2 which is the North American version.
Phones without a memory card may have problems where the default screensaver is used instead of the manually chosen one. This could happen if the screensaver server has the old code loaded into memory and doesn't notice to load the newer version.
At least it's not showing up on my Nokia Software Updater screen. Congrats to the rest of the E71 Fanatics around the world who are able to update.

Selecting another screensaver and doing a preview of it before upgrading might help.
