Sounds like you found a bug.  Right a bugzilla report, on Monday I can
talk to Jeff about it, but if you right the report now you will
probably get some attention from Jeff Johnson or  Paul Nasrat before
the weekend is over.  Also, should be able to locate Jeff and Paul at
irc.freenode.net on #rpm.    Jeff is doing activer work on the latest
release of RPM so if he thinks its a bug you might get a fix in it
very soon.
