Forcing a downgrade seems to have fixed yelp.  I'm not sure if further

yelp has to be built against the version of mozilla installed on the machine...
It's a little odd though, that you needed to downgrade.

Chris, did mozilla get downgraded without bumping epoch in rawhide?

This issue appears to be fixed in the latest rawhide.
