	I didn't hear it; I just failed to catch the changes, and took 
for granted that the two were still different. Iow, my bad, not some 
fudster's. <sigh>

	Given that the two are now the same, I must be OK, since I've 
kept on, with that machine as well as the rest, doing my routine updating 
procedure every day or two -- right?

	So the next thing, afaict, is to go through the orphan list, 
eliminate apps I've installed outside yum and the repos, such as Opera, 
and start removing the others, one at a time, with "yum remove" -- right?
