OK I got it to work.
I dumped the tables that it was complaining about first, and then
dumped the triggers.
I then uninstalled anything to do with mysql, and installed 5.1
Then imported the tables and triggers, and and able to run
mysql_upgrade without any errors.
This is all without using a full mysqldump.
I am now going to go from 5.1 to 5.5
