I think the diagonal split prism focusing screen might be the only difference between the normal and SE ME Super. It is mentioned here.

I think the OP is referring to the beveled edge of the mirror holder rather than the focus screen. I would be surprised if the SE model had a different mirror holder, but anything is possible, I guess.

The split prism in the center of the focusing screen is diagonal instead of straight across (which is how it should be on everything). I know of no other difference unless it was colored different or something too. The cut of the mirror is unrelated, probably a mid production design change to prevent them from hanging up on the foam as easily.

My thoughts as well, though I sort of figured that they might have changed vendors or something similar. Just because Pentax made the camera, doesn't mean that they made everything in it.
