I was a bit hasty there and didn't note the glibc needed to be updated

On another note, on a few of my systems, yum didn't pick up the new packages
unless I did a "yum clean all" first.

"Yum upgrade" or "yum update"? What's the take on that one here on the list?

Both seem to work. Superficially I don't see anything fishy doing either. Is
it one of those zen-things the linux-community seems to be so much into? ;-)
