was really shocked when I say that bind was about to be updated.

First I thought that it may not be the named server, but some libs

for name resolution, so I tried to remove it.

OOOOHHHHHHH!!!!!

evolution, NetworkManager, NetworkManager-glib, etc. will be removed.

Why in earth would any of these packages depende on bind?

# rpm -q --whatrequires bind
bind-config-9.3.2-20.FC5
NetworkManager-0.6.4-1.fc5

I don't know what to say. Well, maybe this:

[root tatooine ~]# yum remove bind

Why does yum want to remove then?

I didn't say you were wrong about yum, I just said I couldn't justify it. You're right, though--yum want to take evolution-sharp, beagle, and krb5-auth-dialog as dependencies too, and I don't see what the connection is via rpm to those either.
