applet erraneously shows package as available for update on 64 bit

Description of problem:
The applet shows that firefox is available for update with a red
ball with an exclamation point in it and when you click it, it tells me that
there is a new version of firefox which is available.
In this case an i386 version of firefox is installed on x86_64 box. If we look
at the subscribed channels an update for x86_64 version of firefox is available
and not i386. But applet shows that firefox is available for update though
nothing new is available for i386.
The possible issue could be that applet lists updates based on just the name
rather than considering arch as well
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
- register a 64 bit(with a firefox.i386 installed) to prod
- prod has a firefox.x86_64 available for update.
- now applet shows firefox in the available packages for update even though only
x86_64 version is available.
shows unavailable package as available for update
should not list unavailable packages

I can reproduce this even with i386 xen RHEL4 full-virt guest on x86_64 FC6 host.
