Precisely. RedHat is bad at not clobbering newer versions of modules
(RPM has the ability to run prep scripts, which could check to see that
the version being replaced is not newer than the package to be installed).

You encounter this, and on Centos 4 I encounter File::Temp occasionally
being downgraded to an incompatible version.
