Description Aner Gusic 2010-05-11 03:18:34 EDT
Description of problem:
Sometimes, yumBackend.py fails in a way that it takes 90-100% of the cpu and never seems to exit.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Actual results:

Expected results:

The bug has not occured since I updated yum.  I suggest we close the bug, I'll make a new comment should the problem reoccur.

Thanks for the help
