rpmdb and /var filesystem corruption in F7+

I have a lot of problems with rpmdb corruption occurring during
(network) installs since around February 2007, and with yum updates afterwards. I've reported the problem here <https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=230362>.

The problem seems to have gotten worse with the latest rawhide releases
- I think about one of every five attempts to perform an install succeeds. I'm still somewhat baffled that I appear to be the only person to be reporting these problems considering how reproducible they are for me with all kinds of hardware.

I keep a separate /var partition, and recently one of our F7 systems' /var filesystem got corrupted <https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=305301>. Perhaps the problems are related.

Anyways, I'm concerned because this is causing me a lot of grief. I'm just amazed that this doesn't seem to be happening to anyone else. Is that true?
