i've had this before, i suspect some race condition, or in the past
you interrupted (^C) some rpm task and the database I/O didn't get
cleaned up. Have a look in /var/lib/rpm if there are some big odd
files lying around with a one old timestamp. __db.001 or so come
to mind. Remove them manually and i bet your rpm updates will be
ok again. I think i found this by searching on the redhat bugzilla
