Is there any way to work around the update problem with 
xulrunner-1.9-0.beta5??  As of a few minutes ago I'm still hitting 
against this dependency problem.

error I'm getting:
Transaction Check Error:
  package xulrunner-1.9-1.fc9.x86_64 (which is newer than 
xulrunner-1.9-0.60.beta5.fc9.i386) is already installed
