You never actually had a /usr/tmp. It was a link to /var/tmp. The
latest base-files removed the link as it should no longer be necessary.
That link was for compatibility with older packages. Packages that
should have already been updated to use /var/tmp.
I suspect you updated your packages to the latest available from hamm
I didn't make the change, I just watch the announcement on debian-devel.
