Apple ID changed after iOS 5 update

Yes, after doing the iOS update, we also ran into the pesky problems described at this link:

It was an iTunes support person who found out for us that after the iOS5 update, the Apple ID has to be an email address, and that the email address that you specify will serve as your new Apple ID for iTunes as well as everything else.

The second factor contributing to our confusion was the fact that the display at the Apple site (such as the Apple Developer site) still defaulted to the original Apple ID, which had ceased to work. After we typed the new Apple ID over the old one then it worked fine.
