Before we take this any further ... was the key you imported to a
repository other than an official CentOS one. (for example, RPMForge,
ATRPMS, etc.).

The default CentOS-Base.repo has this line in it:


All packages in the official repos should be signed with that key ... if
you only have the CentOS Default repos enabled, you should not have been
able to install a package that needed updating without yum asking you if
you wanted to install that key.

If you had to add the CentOS-5 key ... then something is not setup in
the default way.
