[CentOS-devel] Python 2.4.3 deps issue.

I just noticed that while doing an update on one of my CO5.3 x86_64
boxes it listed that it want's to install a load of extra packages
(exhibit A)
I then traced this back to yum wanting to update python to
However when I check one of my RHEL servers it did not have this
dependency (exhibit B) when I updated python.
Is this a bug in the CO package build?

Exhibit A:
