packages duplicated, install scripts NOT executed

(I'm not sure if it has anything to do with "anaconda")
I upgraded my RedHat 6.1 to 6.2 from cdrom. The system is crappy now,
although there was no error during the install.
1. Most packages are duplicated, not upgraded. For example (rpm -qa|sort):
This bug is not new, it caused me headaches with earlier RedHat releases
2. Some (maybe all?) install scripts are NOT executed:
- After rebooting, the old kernel (2.2.12) worked instead of the new,
because the /boot/vmlinuz, etc. symlinks in /boot did NOT change.
- programs using kerberos libs (pine for example) don't work because
/usr/kerberos/lib is not in /etc/ld.so.conf
A possible explanation:
At first, I accidentally choose "Install" instead of "Upgrade". I noticed
it a bit later when it wanted to fdisk. So I went back to the
Install/Upgrade choice, and choose "Upgrade". But the setup program may
have also rembered my first choice because of some bug in it.
I think the setup program should *always* rpm -U and *never* rpm -i. So it
would be less sensitive to such bugs.
After upgrading to beta3, the following packages are duplicated: sendmail, apache, kdesupport. System was restored by removing and
reinstalling the offending packages.
Send the output of /tmp/upgrade.log. If the %pre script fails on a package
install or the %postunpre fails on a package remove they are not

Installed two 6.2 test boxes and upgraded both to Pinstripe.
Come on, who fixed it? ;-)
