From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; .NET CLR 

Description of problem:
I was attempting to upgrade gcc and glibc. the packages upgraded, but now 
whenever i try to work with rpm, it segfaults at the end of the install without 
installing the package (to my knowledge). I saw something about a corrupt 
database but i've rebuild my rpmdb multiple times with no solution.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install/remove/update package via rpm

Actual Results:  segfault

Expected Results:  removed/installed/upgraded package.

Please supply pointer (i.e. URL, attachments won't work) to
tarball of your database:
     cd /var/lib
     tar czvf /tmp/rpmdb-100732.tar.gz rpm
and I will try to get you a fix.

I have the exact same problem.  Same versions of Red Hat and RPM.  Here is the
URL to a tarball of my rpm database:
