You are not the OP are you? I thought you was one of those fedora
experts. :)

BTW. I don't think there is any "official way" for re-installing.

When I reinstall problematic packages I run pirut or yum to un-install,
and make sure to check what dependent packages that's going to be
un-installed. If important packages is about to be deleted, I often try
to solve the problems other ways.
