Thank you stan. I tried it:
$ sudo rpm --rebuilddb
rpmdb: Thread/process 7604/3079239360 failed: Thread died in Berkeley DB 
error: db3 error(-30974) from dbenv->failchk: DB_RUNRECOVERY: Fatal 
error, run database recovery
error: cannot open Packages index using db3 -  (-30974)

This is not the first time it has happened.
I have been using fedora since FC6. This
corruption (due to killing yum) has happened
to me on at least 3 occasions.

I see it as a big deficiency that killing an app
should incur such a devastating damage to it's database.
