As things stand my systems are on version 4.2.0.a.20040617-8.el4_8.2,
the CentOS name for the August update.  There's an October update
called 4.2.0.a.20040617-8.el4_8.centos.2 which has the same changelog
as the August one, and which wasn't installed because it has a lower
version number.

Now there's a new update with version 4.2.0.a.20040617-8.el4_8.1 which
has important fixes in it, but which is also not being installed because
it has a lower number than the incorrectly versioned August update.

The CentoS version on the August update is wrong (it should have been
4.2.0.a.20040617-8.el4_7.2) and it's preventing the December update from
being installed.
