Would a
rpm -qf /usr/lib/python2.4
rpm -q --whatprovides /usr/lib/python2.4
yum erase mailman
yum erase kdebindings
provide some more info ?
   {I am assuming further requirements on mailman and kdebindings would 
cause yum to list the other packages it would want to remove based on 
the dependencies.} You could then see if this ties in with your first 

On my FC6 system rpm -qf shows only python, but repoquery does show 
{different versions of} the same packages you found.
