Did you download *all* of the rpms listed in the errata and update them
at the same time (with single invokation of the rpm command referencing
all of the rpm's on the command line)?  This is critical when updating a
complex multi-package facility like GNOME (or XFree86).  If you did
this, then you've identified a problem that should be reported to Red
Hat.  I haven't heard of this before.  

Yeah, the Debian package stuff is better.
