Hmmm... moved dag's repo out of the way so that rpmforge took over.
Results now in a slew of messages:

...4.01-1.2.el4.rf.i386.rpm: [Errno -1] Package does not match checksum
Trying other mirror.

for the two packages and

...4.01-1.2.el4.rf.i386.rpm: [Errno 9] Requested Range Not Satisfiable
Trying other mirror.

for the two packages. Since this is quite sometime after the
announcement(?), is it reasonable to suspect another problem? Or, again,
am I just being too quick on the draw?

Feel free to ignore this if so. I'll retry getting that security update
another time later in the week.
