The source tarball has changed, but the name of the source tarball has
[mpeters laptop YUMEX]$ md5sum 2/yumex-0.40.tar.gz 
b1f25681bbf17f76d989cc32eaa2a0d0  2/yumex-0.40.tar.gz
[mpeters laptop YUMEX]$ md5sum 3/yumex-0.40.tar.gz 
4fe02eecea3ccc2e2c66d5cd7fafb968  3/yumex-0.40.tar.gz

Changes to the source should be done as patches if the tarball name is
not going to change.
Since you are the upstream author and you can change the source itself
instead of having rpm use a patch when it builds, it is fine to change
the source - but then be sure to change the version of the tarball. I
noticed the build in the "About" window it says build 02. Perhaps you
could put the build number in the tarball version - ie

// changes made and build 3 released

/usr/bin/yumex is still a full patch symlink to /usr/bin/consolehelper

The following change to the Makefile would fix that:
