There are now two outstanding issues having to do with bad dependencies
in the Fedora x86_64 repos namely:

(1) [Subject] Firefox update problem
The update process is bringing in 
     xulrunner-1.9-0.60.beta5.fc9.i386.rpm (why?) 
even though a more recent version 
exists on at least some repositories.

(2) [Subject] nspluginwrapper vs. flash-plugin and AdobeReader_enu
Upgrading the x86_64 version of nspluginwrapper to
leaves the i386 version (if installed) at
Both rpms have to be at the same level for things to work.

In the past, I've never seen such problems in my almost 5 years'
experience running Fedora, and an additional 4 years with Redhat.
What's going on?
