Description of problem:
After adding the downloadonly plugin as described at
http://wiki.linux.duke.edu/WritingYumPlugins and then running yumex without the -n
switch yumex crashes (traceback to follow). Invoked with the -n switch then yumex runs
but as soon as I try to update, the same traceback results.
Traceback (most recent call last):
