GSM webOS users: wait a tic before installing the 'bonus' 1.4.1 update

This is still developing, but if you're a GSM webOS user running webOS 1.4.1 and your device is offering you a second 1.4.1 update, it might be a good idea to hold off installing it just a bit.

The big feature in 1.4.1 for GSM Palm Pre users was that they could finally purchase apps from the official app catalog. The big "feature" in the 1.4.1 "re-update" that more than a few users are getting? Those paid apps (and apparently plenty more) have disappeared from their catalog listings. See this thread for more information.

Before we hit the panic button, though, @o2myhandy has chimed in on Twitter. They are saying that this update is getting pushed out to help out users who had issues trying to go straight from 1.1 and 1.2 to 1.4.1. They promise the apps will return. We believe them (and heart how responsive O2 has been on Twitter and elsewhere), but in the meantime if you're already on 1.4.1, there's no reason to rush into installing the update until this little app issue gets fixed. Again, this forum thread is the place to watch for updates - joebel hears that it should all be resolved within 48 hours.

Thanks to everybody who sent this in!
