Already wiped my entire root partition with the new install. Sorry.

Just so we're clear on trying to diagnose this issue, my upgrade was
from iso's. I only fired up synaptic to check if had done
anything with Fedora yet (I actually forget to change any of my apt
config, so it looked at the RH9 repository on Freshrpms, but I never got
as far as installing anything).

The point is, I think the iso upgrade messed things up a bit, with
synaptic just being the thing that actually caught the problem and
informed me about it.

The only thing that I had really done that was not stock on my system
was to install the Ximian version of Evolution 1.4 (which did a bit of
surgery under the covers on all sorts of stuff), and install
apt/synaptic, with some rpms from (like Totem, etc.). I
don't think that has anything to do with this issue, though. It sounds
like a generic upgrade issue for FC1, coming from multiple distributions
(Brett coming from RH7.x and me from RH9).
