PS: I can't answer this question. I inherited a CentOS 5.2 VPS and  
moved forward from there.

I wrote support and they looked into it. None of their other installs  
exhibit the same behavior.

I accept I could have messed up the system somehow, but I equally  
submit that yum broke something while I followed standard procedure.

Accusing me of screwing something up when I pretty much did `yum  
update`, all the while setting up and obeying priorities as outlined  
in the docs, and pretty much nothing else, is a bit overzealous IMHO.  
See log and the rest of this thread for a full scrutiny of my  

Anyway, for now. Disabling fastestmirror works, full yum log is there  
for people to review, the pyhthon error is easily reproducible  
(happens when mysqld is on, and only when fastmirror is enabled).

Don't know what else I can add here.
