rpmq hangs, rpm --rebuilddb gives segmentation fault

Has anyone seen anything like this? This morning at about 4:am (when my
daily cron jobs run) it seems that a process was started for rpmq. When I
woke up this morning I found that it was still running, taking 99% of my
CPU. I decided to kill it; CPU was returned. However, running yum update
or rpm -qa, each of which run rpmq, causes the problem again.
Looking online, I see that one was to deal with this is to rebuild the RPM
database via 'rpm --rebuilddb'. However, that seg faults on me. I tried to
run 'yum clean' to no avail. Should I try 'rpm --initdb' instead?
