I have had all sorts of 1541 drives to repair over the years and I 
say that I have seen many of the cream cases with the Mid-long boards 
in them.  I think that Commodore had production problems and shipped 
with the long boards because they lots of those and fewer of the 
short boards than demand from buyers.  (All the Long-long boards I 
would classify as 1540/41 drives in the White cases.)
