Done.
Two more points:
1. I used Alternate CD to do the upgrade
2. This happened after rkhunter failed to upgrade (see a separate bug). After that, the upgrade GUI said, it failed and will clean up after itself, after a reboot everything seems to be ok (except for rkhunter which I had to uninstall because system complained every time I did something via Synaptic Package manager).

I was not able to reproduce this in a gutsy chroot test upgrade, is/was there anything special with your rkhunter install?

I does a manual scan with rkhunter and it seems that the problem is:

Hash command output: /usr/sbin/prelink.bin: /usr/bin/curl: at least one of file's dependencies has changed since prelinking
Try running the command 'prelink /usr/bin/curl' to resolve dependency errors.
