This just produces a list of all installed RPMs... did you mean "rpm -Va
--nofiles --nodigest"?  That does not produce any errors or warnings.

I do not have the lzma RPM installed, but I do have lzma-libs installed
(which comes from the lzma source RPM).  The dependency chain looks like

: rpm -e xz
error: Failed dependencies:
	xz = 4.999.8-0.8.beta.20090817git.fc11 is needed by (installed)

: rpm -e xz-lzma-compat
error: Failed dependencies:
	lzma is needed by (installed) man-1.6f-20.fc11.i586

: rpm -e lzma-libs
error: Failed dependencies: is needed by (installed) libarchive-2.6.2-1.fc11.i586

: rpm -e libarchive
error: Failed dependencies: is needed by (installed)
PackageKit-glib-0.4.9-1.fc11.i586 is needed by (installed)
PackageKit-browser-plugin-0.4.9-1.fc11.i586 is needed by (installed) PackageKit-0.4.9-1.fc11.i586

So I guess anyone who has "PackageKit" and "man" installed and wants to
install all needed debuginfo packages should run into this conflict.
(As I would expect the AutoQA system to do?)
