up2date gives error message 'There was a fatal RPM error.  The message was:
Don't know how to handle dependency sense "1"' when option -a is used.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run the command "up2date --nosig -ua"	

Actual Results:  [root@man /root]# up2date --nosig -ua

There was a fatal RPM error.  The message was:

If the -a option is omitted, the command completes as expected.  All
software on the system has been updated (i.e., its current).  The command:
"up2date --nosig -la" returns a very long list of packages that are
evidently not currently installed on my system.  If the exact list is
important, please contact me and I will provide it.

I was trying to use up2date with the "Display all packages available, not only
those
installed on the system" flag turned on by up2date-config.  up2date (GUI) just
sat there for ever until I killed it.

I then tried to do a 

  up2date --nosig --list -a

and go the following:

# up2date --nosig --list -a

There was a fatal RPM error.  The message was:

This is under RedHat 7.0 / i386 (up2date 2.1.7)
