What exactly are you doing that reproduces your breakage?

Forcing the registration of the package may help, but in this case I'd
be leery of doing that due to the explicit 'conflict' warning.

Do a:

%pkg_version -v > ~/pv.out

...and then review the ~/pv.out file *manually* to see if you can
identify any oddities. (yes, grep is good and grep is great, but I've
missed obvious things by grep'ing the pkg db in the past).

I'm personally not one to help with GUI things, but hopefully my
suggestion may provide a lead.
