Whathas happened, apparently, is that they put out new updates...that are 
the old programs. So, they put out an earlier version back on the update 
site, so yum doesn't catch it. On the Fedora main site they have 
just the old version on there, not the new buggy version. But on 
mirror sites, they have *both* new (buggy) and old (good). That's what is 
causing the problem.

Is this worth a bugzilla, or will it go away if the mirrors start from 
"scratch" somehow when they sync up?
