And upgrade from one debian package to another shouldn't do this, and I
very much doubt that it did this.  If you can reproduce this problem
with the debian packages let me know how.

To get back your original identity you need to restore the secret_id_key
in your tor's data directory to the one you previously used.  Or pick a
new nickname and send us the nickname/fingerprint of this one.
