rpm upgrades segfaulting FC1

I am having some trouble with rpm upgrades, while installing new packages works fine. This is what I see when running this:
# rpm -Uvh package.rpm

There is a backstory to this actually. One day I was running the upgrades as normal through the graphical up2date tool, and I upgraded something like 6 packages at once. This was about a month and a half ago when openssl needed an update. When I rebooted, all kinds of stuff began segfaulting after some research and straces we ended up forcing a reinstall of the openssl package(just trying to ssh into another machine was segfaulting as well). After that everything seemed to be working well, except for rpm which segfaults everytime I try to upgrade a package, which is hindering me from updating the system. I had something like this happen in an older version of redhat so I used:
# rpm --rebuilddb

I was still running into the same issue, and I went to deleted the db files:
# rm /var/lib/rpm/__db*

The problem still happens, so I grabbed the rpm of rpm from the install cd and upgraded it with: "rpm -Uvh --force" which ends up displaying the status hashes like its installing, but segfaults after that point. I could not find anything beneficial in my investigation in the logs or and strace of running rpm, granted I am not an expert on it. I would appreciate any suggestions, or help on a fix or workaround, or what else I need to look for. Thanks alot.
