F17 latest yum update hoses grub.cfg, grubby?

After a yum update a few minutes ago, GRUB's kinda messed up. Anyone else?

Right off the bat I get these two (2nd is a continuation of the 1st):


Which apparently fails, because I then get this:


Which, is not right, it's missing the primary/default "Fedora Linux" option which should boot the newly updated and current kernel. If I choose this Advanced option, or let it time out, I get this:


Eventually it boots, but uname -r indicates 3.3.0-0.rc7.git0.3 not 3.3.0-1.

So is this a problem with grubby? Or is this ... wait. Why does the GRUB2 menu says it's GRUB  version 2.00~beta2, and yet yum says what's installed is 1.99-19 from repo koji-override-1? grubby is 8.10-1.

Yeah I'm confused....
