When trying to upgrade from F16 to F17 using preupgrade fails on reboot

When trying to upgrade from F16 to F17 using preupgrade, the boot sequence to the F17 option is stopped with the error "The \usr merge script failed..." etc. on reboot.

I've tried to follow the setps in the Bugzilla posting for this but don't show any symlinka back to /etc. https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=831242
"I have just experienced this on a server I am upgrading. I found a symlink in /usr/bin called 'java' pointing at /etc/alternatives/java. Deleting the symlink corrected the error and the upgrade is now proceeding."
Where do I go from here. I can successfully reboot into FC16 so the box is up & running and there is not a huge time pressure to resolve this.

Thanks,

Re: When trying to upgrade from F16 to F17 using preupgrade fails on reboot

To clean up the symlinks:

cd /usr
find ./ -mount -lname /etc/\*

Then rm -rf the listed items and rerun preupgrade
