Change in YUM with recent update



I am not sure when it happened, but at sometime within the last 2-3
weeks the display when doing a yum update/install/etc from CLI has
changed.

In the past, when yum was downloading packages the progress was all
shown on a single line, and a new line was created only when the package
name changed.  Now it gets a new line for each progress update [1] as
seen from an update done today.  

I checked and there have been no yum updates in some time, so I do not
know which program is at fault here.

Has anyone else noted this?  Do you have any ideas on what the culprit
likely is?  

I noted this update [2] that sounds suspicious, but I thought yum used
python and not perl.
I also see that PIL was installed and python-imaging and python-numeric
were erased on 9/15 with my update.[3]  

Is it likely that an update to python broke a borked call from yum that
had taken advantage of a weakness which was tightened up in the python
update?
