Comment 1 Panu Matilainen 2010-05-14 03:42:48 EDT
This been an issue as long as rpm has existed. Mount points which a given transaction doesn't touch are no longer accessed by rpm in F13 and beyond, so unrelated stale mounts no longer cause hangups. The fix is not suitable for backporting to rpm 4.7.x in F12 though.
