I can't be completely sure, but I believe applying this update caused me
to be logged out of my X session.  At least it appears to have been the
last update applied according to /var/log/yum.log, before I was logged
out.

This update caused an exit code of minus one for me which just hung. I did this update from a terminal.

When I tried to cleanup the aftermath, I noticed that the update makes a new version directory for every instance with the version information. This does not seem needed since this is a one instance package. Anyway, when cleaning up, I had to remove the directory and content where the old package was located by version after removing the DB entry. I think that simply the directory without versioning numbering would be fine. the aftermath noted ne to this factor. Most packages overwrite a non-versioned directory and do not have a specific version to remove. I do think that mozilla did this also which might not have been needed, since only one version is installable. Anyway, I recovered from the disaster but doubt the recovery was 100% clean due to versioned directories.
