Comment 2 seth vidal 2009-06-29 16:15:37 EDT
the rpmdb was never opened here. Does this happen every time for you?
Comment 3 Andrew McNabb 2009-06-29 16:30:14 EDT
This happened along with bug 507093, which might be the primary cause of the problem.  It's hard to say whether it happens every time because it takes several steps to reproduce the problem.  If 507093 is the main cause, maybe there just needs to be a message for this error.
Comment 4 seth vidal 2009-10-12 17:36:34 EDT
I suspect it is directly related.
I'm just going to close this rather than dupe'ing it to that one.

essentially close 507093 and I think this one just vanishes.
