I just realised that no mention was made of the problem - we had a 
situation in 5.2 release days where a repomd file with a clearly 
different timestamp was being considered by rsync to be identical, even 
with the -c flag on. Similarly we had issues with the comps-extras rpms 
being considered identical when they clearly were not, resigning the 
package also made no difference.
