Then you should lean hard on jbj to take my patchfix for freshening in
an epoch corner case
(https://bugzilla.redhat.com/beta/show_bug.cgi?id=143301). Since we've
removed all the Epoch: 0 references in Extras, you will almost
definitely hit this bug.

I tried already. If it affects you, you should try. :)
