Although is anyone actually happy with this as a solution?  Why are people so
quick to break the consistency of the RPM database, which is what they're
doing with these changes.

Wherever possible, rebuild from the SRPM, and the problem goes away.

Once you've got an RPM database that only loosely reflects what you've
actually got installed you'll get into this situation more and more.

Or maybe people just enjoy living in a world of pain?
