This is caused by a bug in Apple's launchd. The problem is that the OS restarts the old scheduler even after the new one has been installed. I still don't know why or how to convince it to stop running the old scheduler.
As you've discovered, manually killing the old scheduler or just restarting fixes the problem. Hopefully by the time I get to next dot release I'll have a more elegant solution.
I've gotten software upgrades that include an Applescript or Terminal script called something like "Run before installing new version" that handle things like that. (This I assume is based on the general reluctance to run a .pkg installer.)
You might consider something along those lines, failing the more elegant solution.
