Description of Problem:
Performing an up from 6.2 to 7.2.93, emacs, emacs-el, and lots of kde-i18n*
packages installed during upgrade but NOT in original system
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
6.2 -> 7.2.93
create 6.2 system with gnome + kde but NO emacs. Then do upgrade to 7.2.93
Steps to Reproduce:
minimum extra such as sawfish but NOT emacs
The original 6.2 system used about 860MB of disk space. The upgraded system
used over 1800MB of disk space. The emacs and kde-i18n packages are just the
most obvious. There are likely lots of others.

rpm -qa from system upgraded to 7.2.93
I have found that the same packages have been added in a 7.2->beta4 upgrade. If
you need the info from that system, just ask.
kde-i18n-* are added due to movements of kde translations. emacs and emacs-el
are added from files moving from the gettext package. anaconda's orphan file
handling is probably too aggressive for today. Too late to make changes for
this release, though.
Fixed by changing the upgrade algorithm
