Yes, I went through and manually hard linked all the noarch files, as 
you were correct that some had different md5sums even though they were 
hard linked.

I am looking for an answer as to why the hardlink.py program might have 
screwed this up ... I have no idea how or why it might have done so.

I have turned off the script that hardlinks files until we can clear up 
what seems to cause this issue.
