that comes from a problem in the metadata-parser and the yum sqlite 
interface, only partially resolved in the fastrack update. The problem 
persists still. 5.4 should bring a more robust fix, for now make sure 
the metadata is rebuild on each automated run with a yum clean metadata; 
as the first step.
