Maybe the other repositories don't trigger the bug. Or have better
packages :-) Just curious, any other repository you use has a kernel

I could eventually "solve" the ladspa problem by not sharing the
directory between the packages. But I would just be masking the problem
in up2date (IMHO), rpm itself does not complain about any conflicts when
installing the packages, why should up2date? 

And what about redhat-menus and the kernel? I'm using virtually the same
spec file as fedora. So I'm not doing, in that case, anything different
from fedora itself and still you get an error...

Hmmm, why fedora.us? Up2Date should be the responsability of Fedora
itself, it is a core package that is not maintained by fedora.us, I

Yes, maybe that would be an option. 
Sorry that yum is not working either...
