Sorry for not being in touch for so long, I've been ill (and am still
bouncing in and out of hospitals at the moment).

Is it overwriting preferences.php? Check your settings after upgrading.
"apt-get upgrade" isn't always as careful as it might be with files it
should be keeping and leaving a new version alongside for you to copy
your own settings into.
And make sure you don't upgrade PHP, or else the libphp5.so file will
get overwritten, which will break >2GB uploads.
Also, if you're stuck on Windows, make sure you're at least running a
64-bit version, and then try Chrome (or else IE9 64-bit). Firefox is
hopeless at big uploads, as is IE9 32-bit (the normal version).
