up2date -i gaim 

with package "pidgin" already installed (didn't know before, that these

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
up2date-4.5.5-8.el3

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Just reproduce the steps above
2.
3.
  
Actual results:
Failed running rpm transaction

Expected results:
up2date should complain, that gaim can't be installed while the "pidgin"
packages (which provides gaim) is installed. The "up2date" process
should end with no error.
