Comment 2 Jesse Keating 2012-05-30 13:35:55 EDT
Changed the bug subject.  What happened was that part way through package install the rpmdb gets corrupted, but nothing up the stack notices.  We should figure this out and explicitly fail the install.
Comment 3 Chris Lumens 2012-05-31 10:15:41 EDT
I don't know what we could possibly do to correct this, but have fun.
Comment 4 Jesse Keating 2012-06-22 12:16:56 EDT
Yeah, after researching it, we can't detect this mode.  Closing as cantfix.
