We were recently testing out the new mozilla rpm's in our test repository and 
some users kept getting the following error when trying to update.  This has 
been tested and fails with the release candidate, as well as yum 1.0, and the 
latest daily.

# yum update 'mozilla*'

I have the the debug files on the web at
Looking through them, and the code, I can't figure out what the problem is, 
because at least to me, it looks like it's doing everything right and 
everything looks right.
