Well, that's not quite true. What usually happens is that when a rebuild
is requested, not all of the other packages which depend on the rebuilt
one are rebuilt. The reasons can be many fold. Normal users (those using
core) don't see this very often, but it's something those using the
developer branch (rawhide) have to put up with a lot. But hey, it's part
of the fun!

I've not seen any reports (except for mine) on any of the FC mailing
lists (extras/test/developers/core).
