Thanks for catching this! The problem is that yum is an i386 package in
ATRPMS, while it is a noarch package in our repositories. This was not a
problem without multi-arch support (though, this had other problems, see
RH bug: 227540).

I think/guess the easiest fix is asking ATRPMS whether they can make
their yum package noarch (since there seem to be no arch-specific files
in it).
