Thanks to Todd and all the others who gave feedback both on list and
privately. I didn't answer earlier because eventually I decided to
reinstall from scratch, and after that reconfiguring everything as it
was before and catching up with work took a while. Right after install
I ran one huge "yum update" and things look good now.

I have written down all the tips you suggested, hoping of course to
never have to use them :-)

One thing I have definitely learned, and that I suggest be included in
the official docs is "since Fedora is a test-bed, bleeding edge distro
and all that...backup EVERYTHING before EVERY update, no matter how
small or harmless it looks. Sure it's a standard practice, but with
Fedora (due to its nature and explicit goals, of course, this is NOT a
critique) it is more needed than with other distros"

Your own civil rights and the quality of your life heavily depend on how
software is used *around* you:            http://digifreedom.net/node/84
