yum only showing i386 packages for install or update on an x86_64 install

yum is only showing i386 packages for install or update on my x86_64 install and
according to the yum wiki this is unexpected behavior.
I have verified that it's accessing the proper repos and that there is no
exclude in my yum.conf file and uname -p show x86_64.
Thus I can find no explanation for this behavior, hence the bug report.
What's in /etc/rpm/platform?
And can you provide yum -d6 update?
I changed that to read:
Now, it functions correctly, seems like that's something that should have
changed during the update procedure.
I haven't found the usage of that file for yum documented anywhere, is it?
Upgrading from one arch to another isn't supported and the installer says that
during the upgrade procedure.
