Need CHOWN Problems solution

What I did was:

"chown -R user:user /"

I meant to put the directory name to change these to; however my finger
spazzed out and I hit the enter key. The result was that every file and
directory was affected. I folowed some advises and got most of the
system restored, however my mail recieving is not working as well as
several other wierd things. 

My question is; If I upgrade to Potato will the system be restored to
its proper configuration? I have a lot of servers and daemons that are
no longer working properly especially the databases, even though I
removed and reinstalled them. Best Guess???
