i'm getting the following error message when i try to use yum...

Gathering header information file(s) from server(s)
Server: Fedora Core 1 - i386 - Base
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/yum", line 60, in ?
  File "yummain.py", line 188, in main
  File "clientStuff.py", line 766, in get_package_info_from_servers
  File "clientStuff.py", line 103, in HeaderInfoNevralLoad
ValueError: unpack list of wrong size

the last thing i did was kill a "yum info ..." with crtl-c.

i tried "yum clean" (and variations) and also tried removing the
files in /var/cache/yum.  i left the rpms alone though.
any help would be greatly appreciated.
