Description of problem:

After upgrading, my grub.conf has references to old kernels, even though they've
been removed.

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


How reproducible:

Happened once, haven't tried.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install FC2. (2.6.5-1.358smp)
2. yum upgrade to the latest update kernel (now have 2.6.5-1.358smp and
3. Upgrade with anaconda. Now I only have 2.6.15-1.1948_FC5 installed.

Actual results:

grub.conf contains:

title Fedora Core (2.6.5-1.358smp)
        root (hd0,0)
        kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.5-1.358smp ro root=/dev/vg0/lv0 rhgb quiet
title Fedora Core-smp (2.6.10-1.771_FC2smp)
        root (hd0,0)
        kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.10-1.771_FC2smp ro root=/dev/vg0/lv0 rhgb quiet
title Fedora Core-up (2.6.15-1.1948_FC5)
        root (hd0,0)
        kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.15-1.1948_FC5 ro root=/dev/vg0/lv0 rhgb quiet
        initrd /initrd-2.6.15-1.1948_FC5.img

Expected results:

grub.conf only contains the last stanza.

Additional info:

No noise in upgrade.log. I suppose it's possible that the new-kernel-pkg
--remove calls got befuddled due to bug 181593.

Yeah, that would almost certainly make things confused.
