FC4T1 "Everything Install" + yum update

Description of problem:
I'm not much of a python coder, so I figured I'd help with the debugging of the install. As a test I ran an "Everything Install" of FC4T1 x86_64 and then yum -y update, which fails with dependency errors, some of which are already documented:
I'd be very surprised if I was the first person who tried the "Everything" install, but as I can't find two of the errors in your database at present, I thought I'd add them here:
python-docs does not update with the rest of python from 2.4-4 to 2.4-6
openoffice.org-langpack-* will not upgrade to 1.9.87-2
The three already documented plus the two I noted above are the only thing holding back yum right now, which is pretty impressive considering the number of packages involved.
As a temporary workaround, I run:
yum -y remove python-docs openoffice.org-langpack-* gstreamer-plugins jpilot gnome-python-libwnc
yum -y update
which installs, as of today, 789 packages.
It weirdly gives the following message before doing so:
Performing the following to resolve dependencies:
Install: jsch.noarch 0:0.1.17-2jpp_1fc - development
Install: jzlib.noarch 0:1.0.5-2jpp_1fc - development
Install: libdbi-drivers.x86_64 0:0.7.1-2 - development
Install: sqlite-devel.x86_64 0:3.1.2-1 - development
I'm not sure what this indicates, are these not in the "Everything" install, or are they not where they belong in the repodata somewhere? If I install "Everything" and then (I guess) update "Everything", why is it hitting dependencies, since those packages presumably need to be updated themselves by the prior step anyway?
So I've tested this about 5 times in the last week and this is consistent. Also, at work I'm really lazy and have unlimited bandwidth, so we are actually talking about a real-world scenario here: I normally do i386 installs of Fedora on about 20 servers, and I'm thinking about upgrading some to 64 bit. I get similar, but slightly different messages from the i386 install, and I will post that seperately.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install "Everything" from FC4T1
2. import 50000000000 keys from all over creation
3. realize you need to shut GPG keys off for the dev tree
4. do so
5. run yum -y update
6. make a list of dependency errors
7. post list to bugzilla
Actual Results: After the initial pass of yum -y update, the process errors out with dependency issues, listed above.
After I remove the packages in question, I can run yum -y update and it works, then I install the packages and they work.
Expected Results: Should not have to exclude a few packages from the update process.
I can't decide whether this is a low or normal bug. The workaround is easy enough, but I do this all day every day, I've seen on the mailing list that other people don't think to yum remove or rpm -e things that get in their way.
I guess it would be normal if you expect the development tree to become FC4 eventually.
I was just about to submit a ticket for the i386 depend errors as I did an
"Everything install" on my machine.
I have the same depend errors listed in this ticket with the addition of
openoffice.org-core which I have submitted seperately:
This is still an issue for me. I cannot update "tkinter" as well due to this error.
I removed python-docs and updated tkinter along with the rest of python. After
this update was complete, I installed the new python-docs rpm from rawhide. I
think that this issue can be closed at this point as I am completely up2date.
