Installing SuperUser from Market

After installing the su binary from the minimal root package, I though I would install the Superuser app from the market. I've had no problems getting the market working (Using the instructions from the Wiki) and installing the Superuser app. I then got a warning that the su binary was outdated. When using the auto-updater for the first time, the download repeatedly failed to pass the md5sum check.
The wiki mentions some problems with BusyBox, so I thought I'd try the BusyBox app from the Marketfirst . Because of space-issues I first had to make room in /system so I deleted some .apk and .odex files (http://wiki.cyanogenmod.com/wiki/Barebones) and subsequently installed the latest BusyBox. Now the md5sum-check succeeds, but somehow Superuser fails on remounting /system as r/w, something Root-Explorer has no problems with.
Apart from this, it works without any issues, I might add.
Any ideas as to how this can be fixed?

i just ran into this problem after i accidentally updated superuser from market. same problem as the OP mentioned, couldn't mount r/w in root explorer, titanium backup no longer works, apps complaining it couldn't access root, etc.

also tried the fixer uboot suggested above but didn't fix the problem.

ended up just installing minimal SuperUser recovery, and now all is well
