I want to point out that in the release announcement, I discuss the
possible (upstream) problem with doing upgrades on x86_64 machines ...
and a way to perform the upgrade that minimizes the problem:

http://lists.centos.org/pipermail/centos-announce/2005-October/000784.html

(See the ISSUES: section which points to this bug:

http://bugs.centos.org/view.php?id=1037

and that points to the upstream accounts of this issue.

I am not sure if your issue is this one, or something else.
