"Maybe you mean" goes nuts with one existing and one non-existing package

Output of yum suggesting every single package
Description of problem:
If I try to "yum install" more than one package where one of the packages doesn't exist, yum tries to suggest (as far as I can tell) every single package in the repository as an alternative. This doesn't seem to happen if the non-existing package is the only one on the install line.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum install java something-weird
(i.e., one package that does exist and one that doesn't; no matter whether it's installed or not)
No package something-weird available.
* Maybe you meant: [every package]
Either "No package available" or a sensible suggestion
This doesn't seem to happen with just "yum install something-weird"; you also need the existing package on the install line.
I'll attach the output of actually trying to do this.
Thanks I hadn't thought about that case!
Running both of the following now does the expected thing:
yum install java balahalahal
yum install java MySQL-server
...this will be in 3.2.19, which should be out soon.
