I would consider http://bugs.centos.org/view.php?id=1483 to not be minor.  I 
looked over Red Hat's Bugzilla and didn't, in the few minutes I skimmed, see 
the same issue in upstream.  It could be related to yum's means of doing the 
package update versus up2date's method; on a production DNS box I had the 
problem mentioned in this bug, but on a machine that wasn't the production 
name server I didn't.

I reproduced the issue using the proper yum sequence, updating python-sqlite, 
then sqlite, the updating yum, then doing a clean all, and had the problem.
