One technique I've found useful when encountering problems after upgrade is to 
create a new user - the new user gets the default config for your 
applications. Then get the application feature working for the new user and 
compare the config files. Sometimes an application config will change 
dramatically between versions. An alternative is to move the application 
config files to somewhere safe, configure the feature(s) and diff, but I find 
the new user technique is easier to spot new config files.
