All of the original screensavers on the NOOK ST have the black bar with the "press the N button below" as part of the design. I replaced the screensavers with some custom designs I preferred and eliminated the black bar.
I use a custom design as well, and the bar now appears on those. Maybe because they were on the device when the update happened. Next time I connect to a PC, I'll try and reload some to see what happens.
