Description of problem:
yum commands list, update, chech-update, info etc. get stuck while accessing file /var/cache/yum/development/primary.xml.gz.sqlite
strace shows that it's constatnly executing brk() system calls and memory usage keeps growing until all physical and smap memory are exhausted, at which point it dies.  I did yum clean all, but it didn't help.  File /var/cache/yum/development/primary.xml.gz.sqlite gets recreated with zero size and  yum still gets stuck.

You aren't the first person to report this, you probably won't be the last, it's
already been fixed, and it's not a yum bug anyways. Update python-sqlite.
