Upgrading with Anaconda causes the same 'magic' to be run.
Despite having to do more steps manually, I had better success with
upgrading to F17 using yum than with the other methods.
One problem with upgrading using Anaconda from F15 was when it
encountered the "qt-examples" package. Anaconda just reported an error
in the middle of the upgrade and offered no way to continue. Recovering
from that was quite painful. Further investigation showed the likely
reason was a case of the known symlink vs. directory rpm issue.
With yum upgrade the issue affects only the one package, but allows the
transaction to finish.
