thanks. I used --cleandupes, but that failed if any package was 
obsoleted. Interestingly, yum remove <obsoleted package> wouldn't remove 
the package, but just gave a message that the package was obsoleted! rpm 
-e worked.

After getting cleandupes to work, ran fedup again. Iterated twice, but 
finally got it.

Of course, now the f19 kernel panics!
