Screenshoot of the VM
Still exist in F17-Beta
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.
