After installing RHEL6 Snap2 with RHEL5 on a different LV and not formatting boot, symlinks are not correct.
menu.lst.rpmsave should point to grub.conf.rpmsave (at least that would make sense to me).

From rpm perspective, symlinks don't follow their targets on rename so NOTABUG. However these .rpmsave's dont originate from rpm as grub.conf and menu.lst aren't %config files but anaconda (booty/*.py). So if anything is to be done about this it's in anaconda land, reassigning back.
Development Management has reviewed and declined this request. You may appeal

Reopening as I believe that this still should be fixed in Anaconda.
This really is correct. Symlinks are simply a link to a location and don't change what they point to when renamed.
Sorry, but the benefit of doing that is far outweighed by the amount of complexity required to do so.
