run this command:

rpm -q --qf %{arch} glibc

I bet it reports i686

you need to make sure you pull in ALL the arch updates for glibc.

so if you look in red hat's updates tree you have updates/7.2/i386 and
i686 and athlon

thats important. yum is being pissy b/c glibc i386 is not better than
glibc i686 - and i686 is what you have installed.

I think this might be described as "correct behavior"
