Does "doesn't let me do anything" mean "freezes"?

Try this, some of which you have not yet tried:

killall -s 9 rpm
cd /var/lib/rpm
rm -f __db.*
mv Packages Packages.bak
db_dump Packages.bak | db_load Packages
rpm -vv --rebuilddb
rpm -Va

Also check your versions or rpm and db4.

On this fully up2date FC1 system, it is:
rpm-4.2.1-0.30
db4-4.1.25-14

If all that still doesn't help; see Jeff on the rpm list.
