[CentOS] yum --allow-downgrade and versionlocking not working

with installed version 1.3.7 from rpmforge
yum --allow-downgrade update rrdtool-1.2.30-1.el5.rf
results in "no packages to update"
yum --allow-downgrade install rrdtool-1.2.30-1.el5.rf
says "already installed"
So, how am I supposed to use --allow-downgrade then?
I had to rpm -e --nodeps the newer packages to be able to install the
older packages. Now I want to lock the package version. However, again,
yum doesn't work as I read from documentation. After adding
to versionlock.list I get:
Error: Package tuple ('rrdtool', 'i386', '0', '1.3.7', '1.el5.rf') could
not be found in packagesack
where I can't find any fix for.
Interestingly, I'm also getting this error on a simple "yum update", that
I haven't seen before:
Error: Package tuple ('perl-DBD-mysql', 'i386', '0', '4.011', '1.el5.rf')
could not be found in packagesack
This package was removed quite some time ago the same way because
downgrading didn't work. (This package wrongly obsoletes a base package.)
What's going on here?
Even yum clean all doesn't help.
