rpm -Fvh didn't

Description of Problem:
When I was trying to freshen a package, rpm did nothing.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Not sure. Here's what I did:
I had patchutils-0.2.14-3 installed, according to 'rpm -q patchutils'.
I had just built patchutils-0.2.15pre1-0.1.i386.rpm.
I did: rpm -Fvh patchutils-0.2.15pre1-0.1.i386.rpm.
I did: rpm -Uvh patchutils-0.2.15pre1-0.1.i386.rpm.
The package was upgraded.
Now 'rpm -q patchutils' says: patchutils-0.2.15pre1-0.1
So, rpm seems happy that the newer package is indeed new, and it was telling
me that the older package was installed, and yet rpm -F didn't want to do
Yup, look for rpm-4.1-0.41.
