4.5 upgrade woes on a mac server

So it is assumed you have not changed os's on the zimbra box.
But this is a different person's upgrade; they had unbuntu, whereas you are on a mac server, so moved to this new thread.

I am on a Mac (10.4.9) and had 4.0.something running fine. Finally decided to take the plunge and upgrade to 4.5. Everything seemed normal, but after the upgrade, when I go to the admin page or a user signin page, I get the splash screen, but no login/password boxes.
Not being one to fool around, I figured I would uninstall and just do a clean install of 4.5. Unfortunately, when I do that, the install script gives me this:
G4-Server:/opt root# /opt/zimbra/libexec/zmsetup.pl
Operations logged to /tmp/zmsetup.log.5104
Checking java version...1.5 found
ERROR: service.FAILURE (system failure: getDirectContext) (cause: javax.naming.CommunicationException localhost:389)
Setting defaults from existing config...Warning: null valued key 'mysql_logger_root_password'
Upgrading from to 4.5.5_GA_838
Stopping zimbra services
Stop failed - exiting
UPGRADE FAILED - exiting
No clue what to do from here. Anyone know the magic?
Continuing reinstallation frustrations
Sorry I dropped off the radar screen. My day job always interferes...

Anyway, I tried the whole deal again. I ran install-mac.sh -u, then did a new installation from the .dmg file. It always ends by noting that the upgrade failed, even though I have uninstalled the previous version completely (since it was only a test installation, I even blew away /opt/zimbra (deleted) and /var/mail/zimbra, to try to erase its memory of previous lives). Somewhere in this system, it still has some record of a previous installation, and I suspect that this is the root of my troubles.
I am stumped, but I'd like to get this thing up and running again. Suggestions?
