Interesting -- on my x86_64 system, which is upgraded to F-13 final
from a beta install, I have the update problem described, while on a
fresh F-13 i686 install on my netbook, there's no problem.

Here are the x86_64 package versions:

$ rpm -q NetworkManager initscripts

and on the netbook:

$ rpm -q NetworkManager initscripts

I tried updating with the updates repo disabled, but for some reason
NM-0.8.1 is not picked up despite it being in the mirrors:

$ sudo yum --disablerepo=updates update initscripts NetworkManager

NetworkManager < 1:0.8.0-12.git20100504

Error: initscripts conflicts with NetworkManager
 You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem

Any idea what could be causing this? If I try updating just
NetworkManager, I get "No Packages marked for Update"
