Description of problem:
Up2date tryed to resolve the dependency for epifany, but i required
mozilla. The problem is it tried to install epifany before mozilla so
it failed the dependency check.
Aparently is has todo with the alphabetic way up2date handles the
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. up2date -u
Actual Results: Fails to satisfy the dependencies
Name Version Rel
epiphany 1.2.7 0.2.1
foomatic 3.0.1 3.1
mozilla 1.7.3 0.2.0
mozilla-chat 1.7.3 0.2.0
mozilla-dom-inspector 1.7.3 0.2.0
mozilla-js-debugger 1.7.3 0.2.0
mozilla-nspr 1.7.3 0.2.0
mozilla-nss 1.7.3 0.2.0
Testing package set / solving RPM inter-dependencies...
There was a package dependency problem. The message was:
Unresolvable chain of dependencies:
epiphany-1.2.7-0.2.1 requires mozilla = 37:1.7.2
Expected Results: Should update the computer.

The problem here is that mozilla was recently updated, but epiphany depends on
mozilla, and a new version of epiphany had not yet been built against the newer
mozilla. Thus, upgrading to mozilla-1.7.3 prevents one from installing
epiphany, which still required 1.7.2 The problem is not trying to install
