Which only crashes because of a completely unexpected value in an
unsatisfied RPM dependency found in your RPM database. It's unusual enough
to require somebody who could tell whether there has been a related bug in
RPM (there's an update for 4.7.2-1 in updates-testing repo!) or to find out
what value is the culprit. A simple check to apply would be to edit
/usr/bin/package-cleanup at line 137 and insert a   print req, ver, flags
line to make the block look like

                if len(resolve_sack) < 1:
                    print req, ver, flags    # insert this line
                    missing = miscutils.formatRequire(req,ver,flags)
                    problems.append((po, "requires %s" % missing))

without messing up the indentation.
Then run "package-cleanup --problems" again and collect the output.

Further, the same unsatisfied dependency would also be found by running
"rpm -Va". Perhaps the output of that command would give a hint already,
