yum-cleanup -d

removes dupes.  From yum-utils.

Note:  Your system will be just as unhappy if you drop power or whathaveyou in
the middle of a long RPM transaction.  In fact, that's what you are doing.
Yum has little to do with this.

[root localhost ~]# rpm -ql yum-utils | grep cleanup
/usr/bin/package-cleanup
/usr/share/man/man1/package-cleanup.1.gz
[root localhost ~]#

The package-cleanup -d scans and lists dupes but it would nice if
there was a switch to fix the problem.
