Perhaps I should have been clearer.  There should be no problem with 
--nodeps when the intent is to turn right around and reinstall the same 

Also, the reinstall should be followed by:

# system-config-securitylevel

To create a good (and customized) /etc/sysconfig/iptables using the 
standard config tool, which should get the rule set right.  (And if it 
doesn't, that's a bug.)
