That's not the same problem. It's a similar problem.

Oh, that sort of helps me figure it out. updates-testing was enabled for
all F13 users up until recently, as this made sense during pre-release
time. Now we're going final, an updated fedora-release was shipped which
disabled updates-testing. So if you happened to get mysql-libs installed
recently you'll have got the version from updates-testing, then the
fedora-release update came along and disabled updates-testing, and now
when you want to install something which needs mysql (not just
mysql-libs), the matching version isn't available, and toys get thrown
out of the pram.

Two options: enable updates-testing, or downgrade mysql-libs (you may
have to do this in an ugly way, by rpm -e --nodeps'ing it and then yum
install'ing it again).

This is the sort of thing you have to be prepared to deal with when
using pre-releases...
