Hmmm, I dimly recall diagnosing an issue like this but have chlorox'ed  
the memory.

There's something goofy about the payload ...

One next step to diagnosis is
	rpm -Uvv --fsmdebug ...
but I doubt you want to examine the spewage.

One can also work around the issue by doing

     rpm2cpio kdebindings-3.5.4-6.el5.src.rpm | cpio -dim

or using the rpm2cpio.sh to figger what is actually in
the payload.
