Have you installed the Aug 9 2000 
"New version of rpm required to install Red Hat updates"
advisory for RHL 6.2 ? 

It is v3.05 of rpm and is the bridge between the v3 and v4 
rpm file formats.

Every official update update since then (more than 6 months ago)
from Red Hat for 6.2 is packaged with it.

Ramiro is correct; this isn't a bug.
