"yum update" fails on fresh f11 install due to conflict between x86_64 and i386 packages

User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-GB; rv:1.9.1b2) Gecko/20090128 Firefox/3.1-0.4.beta2.fc11 Minefield/3.1b2
Around 16:00 UTC today I issued the "yum update" command from a terminal on a freshly-installed F11 Alpha x86_64 system.
yum informed me (amongst other things) that it would be:
ibus i386 188.8.131.5290205-1.fc11 rawhide 407 k
replacing ibus-pinyin.noarch 0.1.1.20081004-2.fc11
ibus x86_64 184.108.40.20690205-1.fc11 rawhide 414 k
replacing ibus-chewing.x86_64 0.1.1.20081023-2.fc11
However, the command later failed with 100 Transaction Check Error messages, all of them ending "conflicts between attempted installs of ibus-220.127.116.1190205-1.fc11.x86_64 and ibus-18.104.22.16890205-1.fc11.i386".
Issuing the command "rm /var/cache/yum/rawhide/packages/ibus-22.214.171.12490205-1.fc11.i386.rpm" and re-running "yum update" resulted in the removed package being re-downloaded and the process failing as before.
Re-issuing he command "rm /var/cache/yum/rawhide/packages/ibus-126.96.36.19990205-1.fc11.i386.rpm" and running "yum -C update" failed with the message "Error Downloading Packages:
ibus-188.8.131.5290205-1.fc11.i386: Caching enabled but no local cache of //var/cache/yum/rawhide/packages/ibus-184.108.40.20690205-1.fc11.i386.rpm from rawhide".
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run "yum update" - fails as described above.
2. Run "rm /var/cache/yum/rawhide/packages/ibus-220.127.116.1190205-1.fc11.i386.rpm"
3. Run "yum update" again - this again fails as already described.
4. Re-run "rm /var/cache/yum/rawhide/packages/ibus-18.104.22.16890205-1.fc11.i386.rpm"
5. Run "yum -C update" - this too fails as described above.
"yum update" fails to complete.
"yum update" completes successfully.
Huang Peng suggested splitting libibus.so.0* out of the main ibus package should fix this.
I split libibus.so.* out of main package. Please test it.
