Comment (by MichaelH):

 Couldn't duplicate this problem.

 Upgraded a 1.5.2 blog to 2.0.1 and had different settings for the "How to
 display name" field and all variations seemed to upgrade properly to the
 "Display name publicly as" field in 2.0.1.

 infovore, don't know if this explains what you saw, but at 1.5.2 there was
 a user_idmode field in wp_users; that field no longer exists.  It seems
 that user_idmode field was normally set to nickname which was also used as
 the login for newly added users in 1.5.2.   In 2.0.1 there is a new field
 called display_name in wp_users that replaces the old user_idmode
