Mass rebuild breaks rawhide dependencies

The mass rebuild has broken the dependencies of packages in rawhide,
and I'm upset about it.

For instance, fresh install General Desktop from DVD made just after
the mass rebuild, then boot the new system and try to "yum install pungi".
I see several errors such as:
Error: Package: glibc-2.13.90-2.i686 (fedora)
           Requires: glibc-common = 2.13.90-2
           Installed: glibc-common-2.13.90-3.x86_64 (@anaconda-InstallationRepo-201102112219.x86_64)
               glibc-common = 2.13.90-3
           Available: glibc-common-2.13.90-2.x86_64 (fedora)
               glibc-common = 2.13.90-2

Take a good look at those dependencies [a fixed-width font helps me]:
  glibc-common-2.13.90-3.x86_64   installed
glibc-common = 2.13.90-2          required
  glibc-common-2.13.90-2.x86_64   available

Changing a mere build number from "-2" to "-3" breaks dependencies?
That is a poor system.
