I re-spun F7 using pungi and rpm-4.4.2.1-1.fc7 rebuilt with this patch. 
Still got corruption on the first yum install after rebooting the
installed system.  This seems pretty common these days.  I'll try
respinning F8 with the equivalent, but I'm not terribly optimistic.

Would I need to rebuild anaconda with the new rpm-devel?  Not sure if I'm
dealing with dynamic or static linking here (I see that rpm-devel does
ship  .a's).
