My apologies for having missed that - blame a couple of days with little
sleep. Here's a better attempt at analysis of the problem:

When running up2date, the latest openoffice packages (1.1.2-10.fc2)
refuse to install due to a version conflict with package redhat-artwork.

The conflicting packages are both 0.96-1, which proably means that it's
a conflict between the already installed x86_64 rpm, and the i386
version on which the new openoffice packages depend.

Thanks for the feedback,

Bob Deblier
