I have seen many messages from you saying this has been fixed and is in the
I have one question that I believe has not been asked,
If a fix is in CVS, Why has the fix not been moved to the YUM
repositories so this no longer happens when using YUM to
update a system???????

This is a tip from Pedro Macedo I got that worked:

"Same answer I'm giving to everyone else: It's a know bug. Has been fixed
and a fix is in CVS. Meanwhile , use 

yum --exclude=initscripts --exclude=ppp --exclude=pppd upgrade 
to update your system , while the corrected package isnt available.
