As is usually the case, --force shouldn't be necessary: --oldpackage
should work just as well and will reveal if there are any dependency
issues (e.g. other packages that also need to be downgraded) with the
action, unlike --force.

Sorry, I don't believe my eyes, but 'man rpm'  says:

      --force
             Same as using --replacepkgs, --replacefiles, and --oldpackage.
:)

Must get a coffee. I was thinking that --force included --nodeps too (another option to be avoided if at all possible). Still, neither --replacepkgs nor --replacefiles should be needed in this case.
