Description of problem:
Used kpackage to remove a number (> 20) packages at one time. It
segfaulted and left rpm database in an unstable state. Now no rpm
utilities seem to work properly (all segfault). I have tried "rpm
--rebuilddb" without luck.
Steps to Reproduce:
I have not been able to repair my rpm database for further testing, and
would be reluctant to try to reproduce the bug if I could. Could this be
1. I loaded kpackage, and selected approximately 20 packages to uninstall.
2. I selected "Uninstall" and used default options.
3. kpackage segfaulted and left rpm database in an unstable state.
I am using the RedHat 7.1 standard installation of the kdebase-2.1.1
package with an unmodified kpackage.
Can't reproduce this on 5 different machines with the current version,
assuming it's fixed.
