stunnel-3.10-2.i386.rpm            |
___________________________________|

rpm -Fvh glibc-2.2-12.i386.rpm

If you read e.g. the errata page for glibc, it mentions you have to
rpm -Uvh glibc-2.2-12.i386.rpm glibc-common-2.2-12.i386.rpm
and then do the usual -Fvh stuff. That's because glibc was split into two
subpackages and the intent is to require both to be installed at once.
The reason why it was split is to save space: glibc-common is only i386 while
glibc is i386 and i686 (similarly for other arches).
