It either worked on a set of packages, which was not affected by any
unresolvable dependencies. Or you installed the packages at a later time
when the issue was not present anymore. Compare

  Broken dependencies with Fedora 13 + updates-testing - 2010-09-08

  Broken dependencies with Fedora 13 + updates-testing - 2010-09-09

and look up the nss* update ticket in the Fedora Updates System to
find out when the fixed package set was pushed to stable.
