Thank you for boiling that down.  We’ve been seeing the symptom here, too, but the trigger was somewhere inside a thousand-like shell script.

We do similar things to what the above test does, so we have all of those packages installed in our default install except for perl-libwww-perl.

Note that the symptom doesn’t happen on “yum upgrade”, only on certain other operations.
