I don't know about the vector you mention.  However my lab has 
recently constructed general purpose S. pombe GFP vectors in
the REP4X background, with  compatible polylinkers to the
GST and HA versions we published last year. Our vectors 
offer N-terminal or C-terminal fusions, ura4+, and the full strength
nmt1 and terminator.  We are slowly building a family of such
tagging vectors all of which use the same polylinker, thus
allowing a cDNA to easily swapped between different tags.  We
have submitted our plasmids to the ATCC for distribution. 

More information, including ATCC accession numbers, 
 is available on our pombe vector database
