Description of problem:
I got a popup window saying that an internal system error has occurred. The details are copied below:

Steps to Reproduce:
This happened while I was doing a "yum groupinstall", but that process went on fine. I suspect this message is from some process running in the background, like the check for updates check, that failed due to yum being busy.
I am running in a Swedish locale

yum: Ensure the lock failure message is proper unicode. Fixes rh#585620
