When trying todo a yum update todo I got this:
Transaction Check Error: file /usr/share/man/man6/worm.6.gz from install of
xscreensaver-extras-5.00-10.fc6 conflicts with file from package
It seems that the xscreensaver-extras 'worm' manpage moved from man1 to man6
sometime between FC5 and FC6. I'd like to say that since bsd-games got there

See BZ #166461 for a reference on why xscreensaver-extras moved its man pages.
I'll follow up with the xscreensaver maintainer and f-e-l to find a suitable
This was actually fixed by the xscreensaver-extras maintainer a while ago, but
