[CentOS] More oddities with priorities

Following on from my previous, I removed the perl-Date-Manip and re-installed
the Centos base perl-DateManip package.

When I do a "check-update" then it shows nothing needs to be done, but
if I do an "update" then it tries to replace the package!

In the following, c5-local, update-local, rpmforge are local rsync'd
copies of the base, updates and rpmforge repositories.  This shouldn't make
any difference, though.
