Well after people found it before it was ready, version 4.71 received bad reviews before it was even released. Also, if there were any new things in it, all of the surprise was taken away. So maybe they thought it was best to fix another bug or two and call it version 4.72, to renew interest.

I realize most people did not know about version 4.71, but 5 or 10 people probably did hear about it, and those are probably the only people still downloading their 4.x browsers anyway so maybe they were trying to keep those people excited.
