I also have stopped getting notifications of updates on the desktop
after the upgrade from 5.2 to 5.3
Also yum-updatesd sometimes reports "failed" on shutdown

The only other symptom is that if i login to the desktop if i open up
a terminal and do "yum update" then there is a process that has lock
through the yum pid but this goes away much more quickly than it used

no big deal in any way, just a bit odd
