Yes, I think the upgrade script in pre5 might write some wrong paths 
to the config file. The next release will use the installer routines 
instead. As you noticed, they work more often.

MARCdetail still doing what? Can you give us some lines from 
koha-error.log around the time of the error, please?

catmaintain I know about. There's bug 600 open on bugs.koha.org that 
is the cause of this. You can try the fix there (putting the path to 
includes in intranet-tmpl) as a short-cut, but a real fix should be 
along shortly.

Are you using simple acqui, or normal?

Maybe, maybe not. You backed up just in case we can't help enough,
