Hm, ok. 

"yum update kernel" did not see anything to update (that's just because the
present problem: kernel was not listed in the rpm dbs). So I did "yum list
kernel" and based on that, "yum install kernel.i686".

This time the kernel update did not erase the rpm db's (or whatever
happened, on two kernel updates before this).

So it seems that my system is now cured, at least for now... Don't know why.
