Comment 2 Panu Matilainen 2012-04-18 11:43:13 EDT
It's not an issue of depenedencies or anything like that, its a previously unnoticed string change in db_stat output which prevents rpm's %posttrans kludge around this (bdb version changes underneath) from working.

Will fix, but then again yum updates aren't "supported" anyway so its not exactly an urgent showstopper issue.
