 Can you also tar up /var/lib/yum/yumdb/ and attach it?

I have a theory I can't prove yet - but I bet this is --skip-broken removing pkgs from being updated and NOT removing their erasure component.

This is why _checkMissingObsoleted & _checkUpdatedLeftovers was added to handle leftover erasure components, so this should not happen in F13.
