agreed ... so their must be something wrong with the hardlink.py program 

i say this because, we only made ONE file (they were noarch files) ... 
they were copied to one place and hard linked into the other place.

then automated -avzH rsyncs were used to copy to other places

then hardlink.py was run against the repos ... and the x86_64 noarch 
files changed, but the i386 ones stayed the same.

i do not know how ... just that it did happen
