yumex package missing dependencies

Description of problem:
The yumex package does not depend on the glade2 package. If glade2 is not

installed glade2 and found that it did not provide whatever is missing. Here
is a listing of some (possibly) related packages I have on this system:
$ rpm -qa *glade*
I build RPMs on this system. I do not remember when the libglade2-devel
package got installed, but I am sure that is the reason why.
It is pygtk2-libglade you are missing
I have added
to my SPEC file in CVS, it will be included in the next release.
