not all packages are rebuilt with every release so it is probably not
unusual for a package that has an fc12 designation that is still working
with fc13.

I would think that any of them that don't work properly with current F13
release you should file an individual bugzilla entry for (ie evolution
remove duplicates package and the package will be notified).
