Just updated the game and I haven't gotten mail in two days. Can confirm that I did ship things. Went a whole day and the second day I waited until noon
I just downloaded the new patch and started my game. After I entered the Furniture Store the screen went black for a split second and my character instantly wasn't able to move anymore. Camera-rotation (as well as zooming in/out) worked as usual. After some time passed the screen went black for a split second again and my character was finally able to move. Was there supposed to be your announced cutscene?
