 No, the bug is that it fails at "Transaction Check" time. For instance
on an F11 box, I have:

% sudo yum list yum --showduplicates
Loaded plugins: aliases, keys, noop, presto, security, tmprepo
Installed Packages
yum.noarch                        3.2.24-9.fc12                         @rawhide
Available Packages
yum.noarch                        3.2.22-4.fc11                         fedora  
yum.noarch                        3.2.24-2.fc11                         updates 

...and if I try to "install yum" it says:

% sudo yum install yum
Loaded plugins: aliases, keys, noop, presto, security, tmprepo
Setting up Install Process
Package matching yum-3.2.24-2.fc11.noarch already installed. Checking for update.
Nothing to do
% 

...which is what it should be doing in the above cases, but the change
from .i586 to .i686 confuses the install/downgrade paths.
