I'm no Tor expert, but based on the announcement I:

apt-get update
apt-get upgrade   [ssl is now ubuntu hardy latest]
/etc/init.d/tor stop
rm /var/lib/tor/keys/secret_*
/etc/init.d/tor start

My server log then gives me:
May 14 09:01:30.488 [warn] Received http status code 404 ("Not found")
from server '...' while fetching "/tor/status/fp/...". I'll try again

Which I assume is because I'm still blocked.  Am I missing a step in
the procedure, or misinterpreting the log?
