I had the same problem with NetworkManager updates. I've just tried
'yum remove NetworkManager.i386' and, intriguingly:

Dependencies Resolved

 Package                 Arch       Version          Repository        Size
 NetworkManager          i386       1:0.7.0-0.6.7.svn3370.fc8
installed         2.4 M
Removing for dependencies:
 NetworkManager-glib     i386       1:0.7.0-0.6.7.svn3370.fc8
installed         103 k
 NetworkManager-openvpn  i386       1:0.7.0-8.svn3302.fc8  installed
      486 k
 NetworkManager-vpnc     i386       1:0.7.0-0.6.3.svn3109.fc8
installed         309 k
 evolution               i386       2.12.3-5.fc8     installed          36 M

As I don't use evolution on this machine (and probably have the 64bit
version anyway), I don't care too much, but this seems to be a bizarre
dependency chain.
