That's sort of weird.  I just double-checked the source and
RPMCheckPackage definitely does consider the release component in its
comparison.  I'm also pretty sure this routine hasn't changed in a
while.  Checking the release also works for me on my FC2 box.

Also, to make sure it hadn't changed I downloaded 2.1.0 (could not get
2.1.3 from the FTP site), and check that one and it also works.  Doing a
diff between 2.1.0 and 2.1.10 which is what I currently run, nothing in
that particular area of package.c has changed.

Is this only happening on RHL 7.3 or can you reproduce it everywhere?
