I don't usually accept the downgrades when they're offered, but, 
I have found those situations useful for other reasons. I'd 
still bet some other package was being modified that could only 
work by reverting your cups, and it gave you that choice. As to 
comparing to Yum, it's almost surely the case that Yum did not 
hit the same mirrors as Smart, and even if it did, it did so at 
a different point in time. I have found plenty of weirdness with 
yum as well, but my general view now is wait - 90% or more of 
issues that come up during updating will be fixed by waiting a 
while.
