When upgrading from nfs-utils-0.1.2-1 to nfs-utils- using rpm -Uivh, rpm reports that 0.1.2-1 is *newer* than A similar problem 
is observed when upgrading to nfs-utils-0.1.6-2. I suspect the issue is with the third level minor revision number, but have not checked the 
source for an obvious fix.

This is a nfs-utils packaging problem. Changing component ...

This is one super ancient bug.

I actually consulted Jeff, and he said it's likely the "Epoch" conflict.
The epoch is not visible in the RPM name, so SRPMs need to be compared.
If so, it's a bug, but since we are shipping 8.0 now, it's not something
I'm eager to investigate in detail.
