You may also want to manage your mathpass files so as to keep separate 
versions, one for each version of Mathematica, in the respective 
Configuration\Licensing directories of the installation directories.

Unless I recall wrongly, under Windows at least, Mathematica tries to 
put the mathpass file in the user's
  Documents and Settings\...\Application Data\Mathematica\Licensing
directory.  In the past I've had trouble when that happens, since when 
the new version was installed it prepended the new password information 
to the existing mathpass file there.

This problem happened only when one or the other of the versions had an 
explicit expiration date.
