ports missing after a upgrade

I've first upgrade my system using the method described at
I had some trouble cause i've in first instance downgraded it from 6.2
to 6.0 instead of upgrading it because I didn't change the 'default
release' directive in my cvs-supfile.

So after the downgrade I did a upgrade from 6.0 to 6.3 and everything
was working as it should. I then wanted to install tinyerp webclient and
I needed some newer versions of installed software so I started a
portmanager -u
I was stupid enough to do it in X so it got stuck after some time...
I killed it and started it again using 
portmanager -u -f --resume
it upgrades allot of ports but then eventually stops with not all ports
were upgraded check /var/log/portmanager.log for info.
head -n 30 gives:
portmanager 0.4.1_9
