1. bumping the version of the report-gtk package should do the trick - I 
already contacted the maintainer and ask him to do - as this seems to

2. fix the yum so it can handle this situation better
3. last resort would be asking rel-engs to remove the broken libreport 
from the stable repositories (if it's even possible)
