Sent this to Steven Stern, who advised me to do it "by hand": run "sudo
yum update" which I did, results below. (Should've replied to list to
begin with, I bet...)
"Wow! It downloaded & installed 129 different programs, pieces of
firmware, & even a new kernel (3.3.4); mixed in among that number were
at least some of the original 10 (microcode-reader, ffmpeg, some of the
SELinux libs, anyway).
So, broken gui updater? Stop relying on it and run the yum command

My behavior was slightly different. Update downloaded lists and
what needed updating, and then just paused. I think I rebooted to clear
whatever the update program was waiting for. I have two systems which
are very similar and both are running Fedora 17 64bit Gnome.
I wonder if the problem is somewhere other than selinux though.
