Please verify that your versions of rpm and rpm-python are in sync.  Those being
out of sync are the only situations where I have seen seg faults like this.

>rpm -q up2date python python-xmlrpc rpm rpm-python
up2date-2.1.7-1
python-1.5.2-27
python-xmlrpc-1.2.1-1
rpm-4.0.2-0.34
rpm-python-4.0.2-0.34

I also tried to reinstall (with rpm -i --force) the packages.
This did not solve the Problem.
I've a recompiled kernel. Perhaps a kernel configuratin Problem?

After browsing thru the other dep copys I found the fix in 34900.
For convenience I repeat the fix.

Yes, freshing the rpm-python package fixed the up2date error.

   rpm -Fvh rpm-python-4.0.2-7x.i386.rpm

Problem RESOLVED!   Thanks! Sebastian
