I know that this rpm has (historically) been problematic, so I have frozen it in my /etc/yum.conf
so maybe i need to release it and upgrade it?

Your version isn't really frozen. You have 1.1.0 installed which -- once again -- changed API.

There is an existing bugreport, I linked that. Please continue there, if you need more info.

I will fix this ASAP.

Can you help with this problem?
