I've seen the same thing since I first started using Centos (just after
4.0 was released).  After "yum update" fails, I just hit the up arrow
and try again.  This has never been enough of a nuisance to complain
about it, but since Collins has brought it up, I can confirm that the
problem does exist.

Is there any way to have yum keep a verbose debug log that we could use
to pinpoint the cause?
