Ok, I think you're echoing what James and Seth said, i.e. I could not have seen
what I think I saw.

I claim that's exactly what I did, and when the problem emerged.

My complaint is a usability issue: I didn't get *warned* that there was a
resolution problem until too late. (And that yum hides the potentially resolving
package too thoroughly.)

But the question is moot until I can prove that I am reporting something real.
At the moment I can't, I would have to do quite a lot of work first.

But at least we all seem to agree that it would be an issue if it happened.
