rpm --relocate seems broken

Description of problem:
rpm --relocate doesn't seem to work. See the output of a try:
[root@trane /root]# rpm -i --relocate /opt/poet61=/tmp/poet61
Installing Java Collection Classes
error: can't unlink /tmppoet61-RPMDELETE: Is a directory
Note the missing slash in "tmppoet61". It doesn't install any files,
but puts the package into to the list of installed ones. Pretty weird.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try rpm --relocate with a relocatable package
Fixed in rpm-4.0.3-0.6, available at ftp://ftp.rpm.org/pub/rpm/test-4.0.3
Please note that everything newer than 4.0.3-0.6 is still under development,
and is a very different beast indeed.
*** Bug 40084 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
The ftp site mentioned, ftp://ftp.rpm.org/pub/rpm/test-4.0.3, no longer contains
rpm 4.0.3-0.6. It now contains rpm 4.0.3-1.03, which appears to be that very
different beast you warned about.
Where can we find rpm 4.0.3-0.6?
Can anyone tell me where the fix rpm is ? I am trying to load Informix
software and get the same issue /products/informix errors as /productsinform.
