Comment (by kallisti5):

 I've made a habbit of cleaning up older hrev packages.  It seems during an
 upgrade, the old package is left behind so you amount a collection of
 haiku-...hrev1233, haiku-...hrev1234, haiku-...hrev1235, etc

 Enter /boot/system/packages  and select all of the haiku*-hrev1233 - 1234
 packages and throw them away.  You will then be prompted to uninstall any
 packages that depend on that version.

 I've been through 4-5 "upgrades" now, and things are still working ok.  I
 do lose my replicants though each time as miqlas pointed out.
