I have noticed that when I have package foo-1.0.i386 installed and some other (x86_64) repo has foo-1.1.x86_64 yum updates foo and removes the i386 one.
(livna mplayerplug-in was it here).
Updates should not be crossarch a i386 package should only be updated to a i386 one (same for x86_64).
Any reason for doing this? Or is this a bug thats needs to be filled?


And when OpenOffice finally gets a working AMD64 version, I fully expect
the AMD64 packages to replace the i386 packages when I do a yum update.

Packaging is hard; let's go shopping!

thats a special case...
but updating crossarch without even tell the user may break working setups very easy
