Well, I only migrated my RT from FreeBSD5 to FreeBSD6 and PostgreSQL8.0 
to 8.2 (and from RT3.4 to RT3.6).
Inbetween these PostgreSQL-releases, the PostgreSQL-team put in a lot of 
unicode checks, so that the import of the binary-dump didn't work.

When that was solved, everything worked again.
It seems, BestPractical has put *a lot* of effort into the upgrade process.
I wish, I could say this for all vendors whose software we use...
