There appears to be two copies of  
device-mapper-1.02.39-1.el5_5.2.i386.rpm in the updates tree (one in 
i386, the other in x86_64) with identical file sizes and last modifed 
dates, but differing checksums floating around. A 'cmp -l' tells me they 
differ by the content of 82 bytes. If your system attempts to download 
the copy in x86_64 you get the error from yum. My local mirror syncs 
from mirrors.kernel.org and after deleting the copy in x86_64 and 
re-syncing everything now appears good (multiple re-syncs before that 
*didn't* fix the problem).

Maybe someone should 'touch' the master copy to change it's 
last-modified date to make sure everyone gets the corrected version?
