No, the worst case is creating fear, uncertainty, and doubt
in the user's mind about the security and reliability of
the process itself:

   <delta rebuild>                                          |  12 MB     02:00
   Error rebuilding rpm from
   selinux-policy-3.6.32-6.fc12_3.6.32-7.fc12.noarch.drpm! Will download full
      package.

The program calls it an "Error".  The selinux package relates to security.
"What, presto updates aren't secure?"
