Since the 2.1->2.5 migration is well-tested / well-excercised code, the 
problem probably lies in customisation you did to your site , or a bad 
interaction of a 3rd-party product.

Think about 3rd-party products do you have installed and to what extent 
have you customised this site.

Since customisation is much easier with Plone 3, as well as differently 
done, I would suggest you try to de-brand your existing site as much as 
possible before migrating, to try to help it through migration, then 
rebrand it afterwards.

Hope this helps,
