I had same problem a year or two ago. I wanted to obsolete integrated 
version 2.x for seamless install of OpenOffice 3.2. I created virtual 
package that Obsoletes old packages, but no dice.

Something is obviously wrong, and does not work like it should. I gave 
up and just removed old version and installed new one.
