Good suggestion.  Upgraded yum, sqlite, and python.  Also added  
enough swap space via a swapfile to let yum do what it wants.  Now it  
just eats memory until it hits a 4GB wall and then dies.

Version info follows.

[root at hostess ~]# rpm -q yum
[root at hostess ~]# rpm -q sqlite
[root at hostess ~]# rpm -q python
