Microsoft released, at least, a quick-and-dirty hotfix that fixes up several issues with SharePoint Services 3.0.
In particular, I've found one of the issues to be very annoying. Namely, when you create a site and customize a list view to something other that the default view and then save the site as a template, these changes are not saved. So, when you create another site based on this template, the list view you customized reverts to the default view.
Among other issues, this is solved in the Hotfix that can be found on this address: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;934790
Well...now we have to wait for the SP1 to become available.....I hope it will be this year.
