Apparently your talking about a gui frontend to up2date above.  I've
never used it and don't usually install it.  I'm guessing the
unchecking thing your talking about can be handled by commenting out
all but the hiwaay setting above.

Aaack... I get a big glob of what looks like python errors here,
shown below commentary.
Backing up a version or two to: up2date-4.3.11-2.1.1.i386.rpm
Seems to solve the problem for me.. I'm now getting reasonable output
from up2date commands.

Error message from latest up2date:
