rpmdb and /var filesystem corruption in F7+

I have a lot of problems with rpmdb corruption occurring during
(network) installs since around February 2007, and with yum updates
afterwards. I've reported the problem here
The problem seems to have gotten worse with the latest rawhide releases
- I think about one of every five attempts to perform an install
succeeds. I'm still somewhat baffled that I appear to be the only
person to be reporting these problems considering how reproducible they
are for me with all kinds of hardware.
I keep a separate /var partition, and recently one of our F7 systems'
/var filesystem got corrupted
<https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=305301>. Perhaps the
problems are related.
Anyways, I'm concerned because this is causing me a lot of grief. I'm
just amazed that this doesn't seem to be happening to anyone else. Is
