yum handles the problem just fine..... 
yum tries to resolve the deps... there are conflicting deps so yum fails. 

What would you prefer yum do?  Install a package in a way that causes
a broken dep chain inside your rpm database? If the deps can't be met
without causing conflicts, yum tells you and stop processing, how is
this not correct behavior when there really is a broken dep in the
repo tree?

This issue is already filed AND the developer has responded saying a
new NetworkManager package is being built.

I'm not sure how constructive it is to post this to test-list when the
developer already knows about the problem and has stated in bugzilla
that action to fix it is underway.
