User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 Galeon/1.2.5 (X11; Linux i686; U;) Gecko/20020712

Description of problem:
At the end of "reading system status" on startup redhat-config-packages crashes.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.run 'redhat-config-packages'

Actual Results:  [pmatilai@chip pmatilai]$ redhat-config-packages
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/share/redhat-config-packages/MainWindow.py", line 113, in ?
    comps = im.readCompsViaMethod(hdlist, progress.update)
  File "/usr/share/redhat-config-packages/method.py", line 224, in
    update_method = update_method)
  File "/usr/share/redhat-config-packages/comps.py", line 379, in __init__
    self.readCompsFile(file, self.packages)
  File "/usr/share/redhat-config-packages/comps.py", line 446, in readCompsFile
    for req in h[rpm.RPMTAG_REQUIRENAME]:
TypeError: iteration over non-sequence

Expected Results:  ..should've started the proggie...

Additional info:
System: Limbo2 (upgraded all the way through 7->7.1->7.2->7.3) with all updates
available through RHN (downgraded up2date* to 2.9.30 to keep it working but this
happened before that too). The crash didn't happen on plain Limbo2, but I needed
to install comps.rpm manually to get it working in the first place.
