I saw the US premiere of the 4K DCP, which was quite beautiful and has none of the flaws mentioned previously. I don't know anything about the BFI screening referred to, but it sounds like it may have been a print from the previous (photochemical) restoration, which did have some of those issues.
Incidentally, as Michael Korda points out in "Hero" (http://www.nytimes.com/2010/11/22/books/22book.html -- his monumental 2010 762-page work on T.E. Lawrence -- which I just finished reading), the 1962 David Lean film is quite fictional. The real story of Lawrence is riveting enough, and I recommend the book highly.
