3. rpm -e ghex2 (works)

No files are installed.

Most likely dupe of bug 489235. Upgrading to rpm-4.7.0-0.beta1.3.fc11 should fix but note that you'll need to do the upgrade with %_install_langs set to "all" (or commented out) to avoid losing rpm itself...
Comment 2 Panu Matilainen 2009-03-12 10:27:40 EDT
With no further info, considering this as a dupe (and fixed). Feel free to reopen if you still see it with rpm-4.7.0-0.beta1.3.fc11.
