Here is the deal.  When you ask yum to install a package (without specifying 
arch) it will install any arches of that package available in the repos you 
have configured.  Both smb4k.i386 and smb4k.x86_64 are in the x86_64 repo, 
therefor you get them both.  smb4k is considered multilib, because there 
is 'smb4k-devel'.  So smb4k-devel.i386 is brought in as multilib, which has a 
dep on the i386 build of smb4k, thus that is brought in as well.
