I've done it before on my wife's phone "because I can't loose anything" and had problems. Little annoyances, like not being able to see new pictures that have been taken, even though they are indeed on the phone, and similar issues. This was back in the 3.x days, though.
Now, I always start fresh.

I always do a full restore to factory settings and then restore and update to the latest iOS through iTunes. Then I jailbreak.
This is a pain in the *** though, since I have so much music that needs to be down-converted to 128k bitrate to fit my 32gig iPhone 4. That part of the process takes FOREVER.
I may just update mine without restoring this time. I can always wipe it and start fresh if I experience problems.

I've jailbroken multiple phones on various versions of software and only restore if I'm updating to a newer software version to immediately do another jailbreak (4.3.3 to 5.0 for example). I've never had an issues, but it couldn't hurt.

it can be a PIA especially if you have a lot of email accounts. make sure to get all of the pertinent info for those before restoring
obviously you can sync apps, music, photos, videos etc just fine
then once you are setup completely i would make sure to make a clean backup, before jailbreaking, so you can reuse that specific one in the future
