Description of problem:
After today's FC11 update, package-kit's applet greeted me with:
"You need to log out and log back in
Package: dovecot, dovecot, dovecot, audit and audit"
The log out/log in part of this messages is clear, but I do not understand what this message is meant to tell me.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
# rpm -qa 'Package*'
What about "The following packages were installed, and require a reboot to work correctly"

> What about "The following packages were installed, and require a reboot to work
Yes, this would be better.
Nevertheless, this raises further questions:
- The message was talking about "log in/log out" not about "reboot"
I am inclined to consider this to be a packagers' mistake, but ..., could be a bug in package kit, also.
log-in/log-out would not help in case of dovecot or audit, restarting the corresponding services rsp. the "big gun" (reboot) would do so.
- Why are those packages listed multiple times?
- Is this message actually wanting to tell "you need to restart the dovecot and auditd services"? In this case, at least "audit" would be wrong, because the service is called "auditd".

Yes, I fixed a bug in PK a few days ago as it was ignoring the reboot flag in the bodhi metadata.

Due to a bug in the restart cache generation. I think I've fixed this now.
I've committed this to gnome-packagekit too:

Use better wording when a package sent RequireRestart
I'll do a new rawhide snapshot next Monday, and hopefully it'll be better then. Thanks.
Richard has this issue been resolved?
