Er, to clarify, file a bug *against preupgrade*. I'm pretty sure
createrepo handles this normally outside of preupgrade so I'm probably
setting something up wrong.

The most recent changelog entry in libXdamage is:

* Wed Dec 03 2008 Caolán McNamara <caolanm redhat com> - 1.1.1-5
- rebuild to get provides pkgconfig(xdamage)

Guess we're not handling that UTF-8 'á' properly.
