You can't have multiple things doing transactions at the same time.  It
just _can't_ be guaranteed to work.  Both yum and pirut should now let
you easily retry (or exit out).  Also, the main reason things were
getting blocked was deadlocking of yum-updatesd in threading land.  This
can't really happen now.

pup has always worked in KDE...   the applet should work in KDE now if I
remember the bug correctly[1].  If not, please file something.

Yep, just like always.  But should be more reliable now.

KDE panel when you made the GtkStatusIcon visible.
