I wonder if this is related to a problem I faced when I installed F15 Alpha RC2 and then ran "yum update". I received some errors about incorrect signature key (it seemed that some packages were signed by a key not present in the system, or something like that). I didn't report it, but it should be easily reproducible.

But maybe it's a completely different issue.
