Description of problem:
The rhn-applet-gui is currently telling me that a new version of
"switchdesk" is available. But when I launch "up2date", it tells me
"You system is fully updated. No new packages are needed".
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. rhn-gui tells me there is an update availabe
2. I click on the rhn-gui panel, and it tells me which pacakges need
updating (e.g. switchdesk)
3. I click "Launch up2date", and after downloading some headers, it
tells me the system is already up to date.
Actual Results: It says my system is already up to date, but the
rhn-gui applet still informs me of an outstanding update.
Expected Results: Update the packages that rhn-gui tells me about.

As I said in the bug that has just been closed as a duplicate of this
one, the problem is triggered because switchdesk has changed
architectures from i386 to noarch.
