 From one of the other lists I am on:

indeed, that is the number 1 item from the release notes.

   4. Known Issues

When updating from 5.2 to 5.3 you can run into a problem with rpm:  
"rpmdb: unable to lock mutex: Invalid argument". To avoid this please  
update glibc before updating the rest of the installation: yum update  
glibc && yum update

and for kick-starters (new installs)

There is a major anaconda issue when using kickstart. With 5.3 you  
cannot set the time zone in the kickstart file. See https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=481617 
  for the bug report. There is a workaround at http://kbase.redhat.com/faq/docs/DOC-15687
