Look at the recent thread 
"differences between yum update and yum check-update"
which seems to be caused by protectbase. It showed different results for 
check-update and update which would create completely undesired action 
during the update. It doesn't seem to protect in all cases. F.i. if the 
package from protect=0 contains an "obsoletes" statement (at least that is 
what I assume) it can overwrite protect=1.
