Description of problem:
Some packages appear half-installed; packages are there, but rpm -q denies them.
 This happens after a fresh install.

Steps to Reproduce:
Log in as root, then run this:

diff -du <(sed -ne 's/^.* \(.*\)\.$/\1/p' install.log | sort) <(rpm -qa | sort)
Actual results:

Expected results:
No output.

Jeff, to update based on what you asked me to look for

The test for the nptl environment is failing and it is falling back to use

Also, there are the correct number of rpmdbAdd mentions in the log.

Jeremy: I am seeing missing packages before *any* rpm CLI commands after
install.  Immediately after install and reboot, log in as root and run the
command from the first comment.  I see 371 missing packages pretty consistently.

Adding a time estimate and moving to ASSIGNED.
