yum output with debug 9

Description of problem:
yum-changelog crashes yum

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. sed -i 's/^always=false/always=true/' /etc/yum/pluginconf.d/changelog.conf
2. yum -d 9 update man pango gtk2 libv4l rsync
Actual results:
see attached

Expected results:
I read the changelog.

Additional info:
using --disableplugin=changelog results in success.

Also this is a LiveCD install from ~2wks ago so some of the updates are comming from the fedora.repo these seem to succeed where {updates/testing}.repo seem to fail. 
I've attached a good run from the fedora.repo also.

OK it looks like the repos have nothing to do with it and its at the package level because this works 100%:
yum -d 9 update man pango gtk2 libv4l cups
see attached log.
The rsync package is causing yum-changelog to fail.

 This is the update info problem in Fedora (updateinfo.xml is invalid, containing entries without id's). We've changed upstream to work around it, feel free to apply:


...manually, or wait for Fedora to fix their updateinfo (or for a new yum to appear in Fed-11 updates-testing, whichever is sooner).
