(i.e. the correct one according to the current grub.conf file)

Btw. I cannot say with 100% certainty that this was working before, so 
perhaps there was already a bug in the old yum. I just don't have much 
time to test downgrading to the old yum now.
Still I can't remember that I had such an issue before on any CentOS 3 
server. (I did have on some CentOS 2 boxes which had been upgraded from 
RedHat 7.0, which also showed problems with kernel default updates.)
