Description of problem:
I wanted to remove KDE; I don't use it or even like it anymore. So I
did a "yum remove qt" and waited for it to percolate.  Gnome was
replaced by TWM.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum remove qt

2. Ensure that no Gnome packages are mentioned, and confirm.

3. Watch how TWM is now the system default.

Actual Results:  Removing these QT libs should have removed everything
KDE related, and anything using the QT libraries, and it did.  It also
mangled gnome-session and gnome-media in such a way as to need to be
installed a second time....it was never removed.  Once installed a
second time, it worked again.

Expected Results:  Removing KDE (or conversely Gnome) should be just
that- removing one or the other.  Are there components still confused
after all these years?

Additional info:

arts requires libqt-mt.so
which is provided by qt
gstreamer-plugins requires arts
much of gnome needs the gstreamer plugins - ex: libgstinterfaces-0.8.so.0

That's what removes gnome when you remove qt.

try yum remove kde\*

and see if that's better.
