i solved the problem using an (older?) yum:

* download yum-2.0.5-1.noarch.rpm from

* save /etc/yum.conf

* install the rpm (using "rpm -uvh yum-2.0.5-1.noarch.rpm --force")

after removing the old yum pidfile it works fine.

I't important to tell yum not to update again to the broken version
(please write a comment if you know how - i dont't ;) )
