I've just tried this with a F9 install CD:

1. boot CD
2. yum update PackageKit
3. install fedora-release-9-3.transitiontest1.noarch.rpm
4. go to gpk-update-viewer
5. get key dialog with correct information
6. click okay
7. goto 5

Not cool. Looking at the output from /usr/sbin/packagekitd --verbose I
can see it's trying to execute, which doesn't
exist. I'm slightly confused why, as it existed in 0.1.x. I've released
0.2.5 upstream this morning, as it incorporated all 7 patches from the
PackageKit-0.2.4-7 release, plus a few other trivial bugs from upstream.
This is building as:

8. install Packagekit-0.2.5-1 and gnome-packagekit-0.2.5-1
9. click okay
10. key is imported
11. update continues

I really can't reproduce that backtrace -- but I think I can work out
what's happening. The 0.1.x versions of PackageKit didn't treat the
finderprint return value as a function, but the 0.2.x version did (and
the 0.2.x and 0.3.x code works). This leads me to come to the conclusion
that you might have been running the old version of PackageKit (0.1.x or
0.2.4-3?), not the new version.

Could you please retry your tests with the 0.2.5-1 versions please?
