Well... ya' got me now. I don't doubt you but I wish that I could see this
happen. I did three Fedora 10 installs a long time ago. When it was first
released. One desktop, mine, and two laptops, son and girlfriend. None of us
had this situation. And we have, me actually, seen to it that the installs
are kept updated. Hmm... does this happen before or after you update the
install from the DVD to 'today'? That I have not done. Fresh install of an
out of date ISO and then updated to 'today'.

At least it is only annoying and not a disaster?  :-p
