Nope, I really meant RHL9, the final version.

Well, it's one of our test systems that I never have problems with
(and we generate also kernel rpm's on that system ;-)), so this is
not very likely.  I can reproduce it pretty easy, in many cases it
seems to segfault (I didn't count, but my guess is in 30 or 40% of
the installs I tested - I did this with one single rpm, b.t.w.).

Yeah, in the meantime I did notice this.  Anyway, I started a new
thread on the Yum mailing list, with more specific requirements
in this area.
