So what's the proper workaround here? As far as I'm concerned, Dag
has broken the update system on our Centos boxes. Is there any other
way to allow my system to be updated than to disable using Dag's repo?

(not including removing Audacity--which I don't use a LOT, but I do
use it.)

               But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: 
                         While we were still sinners, 
                              Christ died for us.
