correct analysis. I ended up hardlinking the
i386/RPMS/device-mapper-1.02.39-1.el5_5.2.i386.rpm file into the x86_64 tree on
the master centos.org machine.
But that was not enough to have it propagated on the centos.org msync machines.

So I just:
/bin/rm centos/5.5/updates/x86_64/RPMS/device-mapper-1.02.39-1.el5_5.2.i386.rpm && \
ln \

I could try that, but I am not sure it will help...
