That is funny. I had just this problem yesterday... I "apt-get upgrade"-ed
and my HD was full... and now my system is in dubious state... 
Missing KDE icons. Or actually, i think this is caused by a versioning 
problem that is caused by the upgrade:

libpng warning: Application was compiled with png.h from libpng-1.0.12
libpng warning: Application  is  running with png.c from libpng-1.2.1
libpng error: Incompatible libpng version in application and library

I guess packages are only partly upgraded. Some files are, others are not...
I can only fear what other incompatibilities are caused by the upgrade.

Now, I am facing the following problem (after making more space):

- how can i determine which packages were updated yesterday?
- how can i (semi)-automatically reinstall these packages?

In the mean time i filed a bug (#127942) against apt for loss of non-critical 
data. It can be argued wether it is loss or not, but anyway, my systems 
expects files that are not installed, and thus are missing IMHO...
