Description of Problem:
If you attempt to uninstall a package that other packages depend on, 
without removing those other packages first, kpackage may crash instead of 
giving an error message.

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

How Reproducible:
With certain packages it always happens.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Insert Install CD #3 and install mysql (which for reasons that totally 
escape me is not installed when you do a "custom install" and select the 
"SQL" group) along with all MySQL related packages like mysqlclient9, 
mysql-devel, mysql-server, DBI-mysql, php-mysql, and qt-mysql using 
2. Now attempt to uninstall just mysql with kpackage.
3. kpackage crashes.  It will only work if you uninstall all of those extra 
packages (mysqlclient9, mysql-devel, ...) before uninstalling mysql.

Actual Results:
