thank you for testing it out. I have prepared a new release,
yum-3.2.8-9.el4.hrb.2.1.3 which improves catchSqliteException and
resolves sqlite location_base error, so there's no need to run 'yum
clean all'. Now it upgrades itself and installs/updates then smoothly.

One thing to point out for everyone: do not forget to remove any old
plugins in /etc/yum/pluginconf.d/ you have "installed" here by hand.
