User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.10) Gecko/20050716 Firefox/1.0.6

Description of problem:
When running yum with the "exclude=" switch, yum still fails.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.$ sudo yum -y --exclude=k3b-ape update

Actual Results:  ...
--> Running transaction check
--> Processing Dependency: libk3bplugin.so.2 for package: k3b-ape
--> Finished Dependency Resolution
Error: Missing Dependency: libk3bplugin.so.2 is needed by package k3b-ape

Expected Results:  There can not be a dependency upon an "excluded" package - that makes no sense.

There isn't a dependency on an excluded package:

Do you already have k3b-ape installed on the system?

If so then something you're upgrading is removing a needed library for the
installed k3b-ape.

Hence why k3b-ape is complaining.

excludes only affect packages in repositories, not installed packages.
