Full yum output

Description of problem:
uninstall of rpm displays a traceback error, and package doesn't get removed

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

How reproducible:
performed on 2 boxes with same results

Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum install python-twisted-words
2. yum remove python-twisted-words python-zope-interface

Actual results:
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/libexec/twisted-dropin-cache", line 13, in ?
    from twisted.plugin import IPlugin, getCache
  File "/usr/lib64/python2.4/site-packages/twisted/__init__.py", line 22, in ?
    raise ImportError("you need zope.interface installed "
ImportError: you need zope.interface installed (http://zope.org/Products/ZopeInterface/)

Expected results:
  Erasing        : python-twisted-words                           2/7

Additional info:
I found this by removing all the dependencies at the same time.  If i just remove the python-twisted-words package it uninstalls fine.
Comment 1 Greg Swift 2012-03-16 10:00:10 EDT
While the full output shows errors with the python-twisted-{names,web} packages, if the process is performed without python-twisted-words then python-twisted-names will install/uninstall fine.  However, python-twisted-web will also fail.
