When selecting to upgrade Xconfigurator to version 4.9.19 release 1,
up2date crashes completely with an error message:
"There was a fatal RPM error. The message was:
The package kudzu-0.97.6-1 conflicts with: mouseconfig"
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Run up2date on a 7.1 Beta 2 system with kudzu-0.97.6-1 installed
2.Select Xconfigurator 4.9.19-1 to be installed
Actual Results: Error message shows up, and up2date crashes completely.
Expected Results: Conflict should have been reported without up2date crashing.

is available on the beta server that probable needs to get resolved.
No other error message was reported than the conflict. When I pressed Ok in the
message dialog box, the up2date-application was terminated. A more reasonable
behavior would have been to continue with other packages selected and just skip

conflict. This was never reported, only the one already installed package was
