Comment 1 Panu Matilainen 2014-08-06 08:15:57 UTC
Might be related to/same as bug 1122004, the package is truly ancient (built with rpm 3.0.3) and does not have compressed filelist, just like 1122004 was built with newer rpm but --nodirtokens.

In any case, its a regression that needs fixing. Florian?

Comment 2 Panu Matilainen 2014-08-12 08:16:13 UTC
Closer inspection reveals this is indeed a duplicate of 1122004, compatibility with truly ancient package payloads got broken in 4.12 (more or less intentionally, that these packages still exist is kind of surprising)
