Dependency loop failure during upgrade.

During a GUI upgrade from 6.2 --> beta2 it first comes up with
(this is a non-custom upgrade). The original machine is a 6.2 server
So I hit next and get a huge dependency list against glibc.
Additionally I have vt3 console messages that state
mkbootdisk conflicts with to-be-installed package modutils, removing from
set, * removed and so on. Most of these were removed against
I hit next again and it loops back to
initscripts --> modutils
And then back to the massive failure list. And loop.
This may be related to 12276/11987 w/o the disk space problem.
The aborted install (because of the loop) does wipe out the old rpm database
but left the new db files in place, I was able to proceed with a text
install which will be documented in a different bug.
fixed in beta3
