Description Jim White 2009-09-21 20:53:41 UTC
Problem:  When updating a 5.4 system from RHN, we experience a
          circular dependency issue between three packages and their
          replacements.

Details:

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
On one pass, three "openib" packages are updated:

  Installing     : perftest                                                 1/6
  Installing     : mstflint                                                 2/6
  Installing     : tvflash                                                  3/6
  Erasing        : openib-perftest                                          4/6

On the next pass, this is reversed:
