Looks like that is what the bz fix has, and it sounds correct to me.
libsmbios obsoletes libsmbios-bin

argh.  i just checked the development repos for both i386 and x86_64,
and they both now have a newer version (".2") of libsmbios, which
allegedly handles obsoletes correctly.  so i remove the cached earlier
libsmbios package (".1") from my x86_64 system, run "yum update", and
yum is *still* downloading and trying to install the earlier (wrong)

grrrrrrr ......
