2. rpm package b has "Conflict: /foo/bar"
3. install rpm package a

Everytime, see above.

Adding jbj, that it really reaches a rpm upstream guy ;-)

Hmmm, WORKSFORME with rpm-4.4.6-0.5:

$ rpm -Vv a
........  c /foo/bar
$ rpm -qp --conflicts b-1.2-3.i386.rpm 
$ rpm -ivh b-1.2-3.i386.rpm 
error: Failed dependencies:
        /foo/bar conflicts with b-1.2-3.i386
