Well I have and quite often. This was a clean FC6 install
too. Perhaps *you* aren't getting them because you don't have as many packages installed?
Not sure whether this is a big number or not:

[root fubar ~]# rpm -qa | wc -l
[root fubar ~]# uname -a
Linux fubar.local.davenjudy.org 2.6.19-1.2911.fc6 #1 SMP Sat Feb 10 15:16:31 EST 2007 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

I've had more problems on my i686 desktop but that was due to mixing the wrong combination of repositories (Dries and Livna). Incompatible repos seems to be more of an issue than yum itself. I keep the laptop fairly sane since I only use it for a limited number of things. The desktop tends to accumulate stuff (and incompatibilities) since that's where I play. Not sure how to handle this since "the right thing" would be for everyone to build to the same standard (you can stop laughing now).
