yumex wedges upgrading kernel in /sbin/new-kernel-pkg & friends



Gang,

I'm looking for suggestions on this one....

Using yumex (yumex-2.0.1-1.fc6) to upgrade the following packages:
> 00:18:12 : Getting : http://mirrors.kernel.org/fedora/core/updates/6/i386/kernel-doc-2.6.22.4-45.fc6.noarch.rpm

While running the transaction, kernel.i686 0:2.6.22.4-45.fc6 wants to be installed first.
However, the install wedges with the following "ps ax --forest" output:

Once it hits this point, there's no forward progress and none of the pids listed above
clock any time.

If it matters: "rpm -V mkinitrd" and "rpm -V nash" both say nothing's munged.
 > SOS:sos=> rpm -q mkinitrd
 > mkinitrd-5.1.19.0.3-1
 > SOS:sos=> rpm -V mkinitrd
 > SOS:sos=> rpm -q nash
 > nash-5.1.19.0.3-1
 > SOS:sos=> rpm -V nash
 > SOS:sos=> 

Yeah.. I know it's trying to write the /boot/initrd-2.6.22.4-45.fc6.img file, but why
is the process hanging?

Any help would be appreciated'idly,

-S
