Description of problem:
While setting up up2date to check packages from both the official
RHEL3 repo, and the jpackage repo, an attempt to up2date bombs like so:

[root@gatekeeper root]# up2date -u

Sometimes the above bombout happens, sometimes the dependancy solver
will hang for a number of hours (until killed manually).

I am not sure whether the mx4j package has something to do with this -
it is apparently incompatible with the jpackage stuff, and being more
recent than the jpackage stuff up2date is continually insisting on
trying to install it.
