Remember, upgrading is exactly what it is, upgrading. It doesn't
(AFAICT) install extra packages, unless one of the upgraded packages has
a dependency that must be met, therefore installs the package. rhgb
doesn't exist on 9, so it doesn't get installed. And just because the
/etc/sysconfig/init got updated, is only because it already existed and
the new package included the graphical boot code.
OTOH anaconda *does* fiddle around with package selections to some extent on
upgrades: there's code for removing blacklisted stuff (linuxconf, no wonder :),
installing rhn-applet if up2date-gnome was installed, making sure certain GNOME
packages are installed etc. Whether rhgb should be automatically added on
upgrade .. well, I dunno.
