That is totally to be expected behaviour.  Package pre and post-install
scripts are not supposed to touch anything in /home,
the upgrading of these files is supposed to happen when you launch
the respective applications the first time.
This is documented in the release notes for Squeeze.

Its probably a good idea for you to review the list of
packages to be removed by apt-get autoremove before you accept the
action to take place.  The definition of "old, unused" packages for
autoremove might be a little different from what you expect, at least
thats what I read in the paragraph above.

I have not done any Lenny -> Squeeze upgrades on Orca-enabled
machines yet, so I can not confirm these problems.
I do, as Jason, run debian unstable, relatively regularily updated, and
it does not show any problems with the Alt+F1 menu.

I am probably not of very much help to you here, since my speech
setup is a little bit more conservative.  I still use gnome-speech
with ibmtts on one machine and espeak on my other desktop.

And, I am still keeping away from PulseAudio.  For now, I need a working
Orca+Firefox, so I stay away from too much change around my desktop
accessibility infrastructure.  Its going to be a hell of a ride
soon anyways, with upcoming AT-SPI D-Bus migration and the very likely
final deprecation of gnome-speech.

Since I am still on gdm(2) I can't help there either, sorry.
