I did do that when I was doing the update from Jaunty to Karmic.  Well, 
technically, at the time, I did 'sudo do-release-upgrade -d' per

This was days later, just doing a regular old 
keep-the-machine-up-to-date.  Nothing to do with the upgrade, except 
that I'd never had these bazaar problems *before* the upgrade, and I 
still suspect an ugly ext4 driver/aptitude/dpkg interaction.
