[CentOS] New yum search behavior is awful/useless

Anyone already tried yum search after the 5.2 upgrade?

yum search perl-MIME-tools
<skipped some stuff>
perl-MIME-tools.noarch : Perl modules for parsing (and creating!) MIME 
entities
perl-MIME-tools.noarch : Perl modules for parsing (and creating!) MIME 
entities
perl-MIME-tools.noarch : Perl modules for parsing (and creating!) MIME 
entities

That *used* to tell if it's installed (and from where) and from which 
repositories which version is available. This information is all gone now. 
Also gone is the description. I can get the description from info and the 
installed status from list, but the repo information is completely gone 
now it seems. In this state yum search is pretty useless.
Am I missing something? man yum and yum.conf don't list any options to get 
a more useful behavior.
