Can't update i386 packages on x86_64 - gnome-panel and elfutils-libelf

Description of problem:
I have just (re-)installed fc6 on an x86_64 and applied all the updates. I can
For a number of packages I get a complaint that the package has files that
conflict with a newer version of itself. As most of these where -devel packages
that I had no reason to have installed anyway, I deleted them. But two remain -
gnome-panel.i386 and elfutils-libelf.i386. It seems as though I have two
versions installed for yum gnome-panel and elfutils-libelf.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Don't know, have not attempted another re-install.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install fc6 from DVD
2. Run yum update
gnome-panel and elfutils-libelf will not upgrade do to dependancy conflicts
gnome-panel and elfutils-libelf should upgrade correctly
Did you have a failed update run in there? As you have multiple versions of
packages installed which isn't normal.
To be honest, I cannot now remember, sorry. It's possible, but I didn't think
so. I did also discover that I had numerous multiple packages for all sorts of
things, which I have manually removed, and have had no further problems. As I
am no longer able to repeat the problem, I suppose you can close the bug -
manual removal seems to be the fix. Thanks for your help.
