Rawhide updated breaks yum

Somehow it's possible to update rpm but not yum and break Rawhide,
using just 'yum' commands, not rpm directly and no forced installs.
Anyway my machine now says:

$ sudo yum install yum
error: db5 error(-30969) from dbenv->open: BDB0091 DB_VERSION_MISMATCH: Database environment version mismatch
error: cannot open Packages index using db5 -  (-30969)
error: cannot open Packages database in /var/lib/rpm

Error: rpmdb open failed

'rpm -qa' is fine.

I hope I'll be able to rpm -U the appropriate yum or rpmlib or
whatever to fix this, but be warned ...
