Post truncation problem after upgrade to Wordpress 2.7.1

I recently upgraded our blog to Wordpress 2.7.1 from a previous version of Wordpress. Things went very well. The only problem is that all of the posts displayed on the home page are truncated. If you click on them, you get the full posts, so the posts do exist, but this is not what we want. We want full posts on the home page. Under Settings=>Reading, I selected "Full Text", but it doesn't matter. I have posted the code for the main index page. The blog url is http://www.morterblog.com. Thank you in advance for your help with this troublesome issue!
<?php get_header(); ?>
<script src="../../../../Scripts/AC_ActiveX.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
<script src="../../../../Scripts/AC_RunActiveContent.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
 
 
<div id="content">
<br><br>
 
 
<div id="contentleft">
	<?php if (have_posts()) : while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?>
	<div class="the_date">
			<div class="date_m"><?php the_time('M') ?></div>
			<div class="date_d"><?php the_time('j') ?></div>
            </div>
            
	<h1><a href="<?php the_permalink() ?>" rel="bookmark"><?php the_title(); ?></a></h1>
			
	<p>
		
    Filed Under <?php the_category(', ') ?>
    
    </p>
	<?php the_content(__('Read more'));?>
	<!--

Try changing
<?php the_content(__('Read more'));?>
to
<?php the_content(); ?>
if that doesn't work try changing
<?php if (have_posts()) : while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?>
to
<?php global $more; if (have_posts()) : while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?>
and
<?php the_content(); ?>
to
<?php
// Display all content, including text below more
$more = 1;
the_content();
?>

Thank you for your help. I tried what you suggested, but with no effect. The code for the main index template, as changed, is attached. I hope we can figure this one out! Thanks.

No luck. And now when I click on the summary title, it doesn't even show the post! Man, I regret "upgrading" to 2.7.1. Help!

Put the main index back, but the problem remains. It just shows the titles, no content displayed, even if you click the title, it won't show the content of the post. :(

<?php get_header(); ?>
<script src="../../../../Scripts/AC_ActiveX.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
<script src="../../../../Scripts/AC_RunActiveContent.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
 
 
<div id="content">
<br><br>
 
 
<div id="contentleft">
	<?php if (have_posts()) : while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?>
	<div class="the_date">
			<div class="date_m"><?php the_time('M') ?></div>
			<div class="date_d"><?php the_time('j') ?></div>
            </div>
            
	<h1><a href="<?php the_permalink() ?>" rel="bookmark"><?php the_title(); ?></a></h1>
			
	<p>
		
    Filed Under <?php the_category(', ') ?>
    
    </p>
	<?php the_content(__('Read more'));?>
	<!--
	<?php trackback_rdf(); ?>
	-->
	
	<a name="comments"></a><h1>Comments</h1>
	<?php comments_template(); // Get wp-comments.php template ?>
	<?php endwhile; else: ?>
 
	<p><?php _e('Sorry, no posts matched your criteria.'); ?></p><?php endif; ?>
	
	<!-- <div align="center" id="paginate"><?// print_pg_navigation() ?></div> -->
	</div>
	
<?php get_sidebar(); ?>
 
<!-- The main column ends  -->
 
<?php get_footer(); ?>

Don_Pendergraft:

Do you have any plug-ins activated? If so please deactivate all of them and try again. If this works, try reactivating one plug-in at a time until failure. This will also help you determine where the problem is.

Thank you for the suggestions! Actually, I did switch to default theme and deactivated all plugins, but the problem remained. Any other ideas?

The two answers that I split the points between when combined together yield the correct solution. Just switching to the default theme didn't fix the problem. Just deactivating all of the plugins didn't fix the problem. However, when I did both together, I was able to get the site back to how it's supposed to be. Great job on the collaborative effort!
