It seems that "sencha app upgrade" has some problems removing the previous touch files (and thus not copying in new ones), if hidden files have been added somewhere down the directory tree.
I noticed this after having added the touch folder subversion (thereby adding ".svn"-folders in every folder). Forcibly removing the touch directory, and re-running "sencha app upgrade" worked fine.
Upgrade was from ST 2.1 to 2.2.
