I found another machine where the problem occured.  On a hunch I moved 
all the existing repackaged files into another directory.  When I did 
this, and re-ran my test, all was well.  I found which rpm is causing the 
problem, but I don't know what to do to determine what the problem is?
I can query the repackaged package just fine, and it is a fairly simple 
package to boot.  Finally, it was installed at a much earlier date than 
any of these rollbacks, so on the surface, it should not affect things.

What do I need to look for to figure out why this package is causing 
rpm to not properly roll things back?
