Thanks, I had filed a bugzilla and gotten that --noscripts suggestion within 
hours. 

To Kam: yes, there are good reasons for clean installs, so what??? 

There are also good reasons for upgrades, and I chose the latter -- I'm happy. 
It took me under an hour to fix a couple of issues after the process, and now 
my machine is exactly configured as it was before, without my having to go in 
and rebuild all my many months of configurations and customizations which 
normally can take many hours, and usually, more than that - days...
