Description of problem:
if you enter the yum shell:
# yum shell
 and issue an install command 
> install somepackage
it fails to install the package.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. run yum shell
2. run install somepackage
Actual results:
The following text is displayed:

Setting up Install Process
Parsing package install arguments

And then that's it. No install takes place.

Expected results:
I expect the package to get installed along with its dependancies.

the purpose of the yum shell is so you can stack commands and run them in a batch

type 'help' for help.

but you can run:
install somepackage

the 'run' will run the transaction you have created.
