I had a strange problem with yum and latest cyrus updated for Fedora Core 2.

Basically, whey I ran "yum upgrade", yum downloaded headers for new 
cyrus packages, and than concluded there's nothing to update.  Not 
surprising, since it downloaded headers that said 
cyrus-*-0-2.2.10-1.fc2.  I've noticed that bunch (but not all) of other 
files in headers directory have "0" prepended to version.  The version 
number of actaull RPMs were correct (cyrus-*-2.2.10-1.fc2) So yum 
probably decided that "0-2.2.10-1.fc2" is older than "2.2.x-xx" 
installed on the system (don't remember what was previous version).

There are several more recent updates suffering from this.

I solved the problem by downloading packages by hand and doing rpm -Fhv 
cyrus* perl-Cyrus*.

Is the Fedora Core 2 repository broken?
