Yes, I did a clean install. Once would expect, however, that it wouldn't
(or at least *SHOULDN'T*) be necessary. Ubuntu is Debian based, and
Debian has often excused it's bad installer by pointing out that you
only had to use it once, from then on, apt and dist-upgrade would do the
job. On the Ubuntu website, they even say that a dist-upgrade was all
that is needed.
I didn't believe them, though ... I did a full install. Of course, that
didn't give a clean system either.
