Taking both ipa-server's out:
rpm -e ipa-server-2.2.0-16.el6.x86_64 ipa-server-selinux-2.2.0-16.el6.x86
worked. I was then able to:
yum install ipa-server
followed by rpm -e the other ipa\* and xorg\* duplicates that were listed,
to get things back to a consistent state. I also ran:
for good measure.
1) yum-complete-transaction is not a silver bullet.
2) Don't order the Kill Yum Special at the Derhay Cafe.
