I for one question whether or not the Tuvok and Neelix who were brought back out of Tuvix were actually the same beings as the originals. I think it's more accurate to call them identical copies.
You can say the same thing about every character that ever went through the transporter.
No, there's uninterrupted continuity of consciousness when the transporter works normally. Tuvok and Neelix clearly did not have an uninterrupted continuity of consciousness; their consciousnesses ceased to exist and Tuvix's consciousness developed.
