I do not know the answer to your question.  I ask out of curiosity.

Were you modifying /etc/yum/pluginconf.d/installonlyn.conf  ?
In this file, is "enabled=1" ?

While searching the Internet, "installonlyn.conf", I found complaints
about tokeep not working in Rawhide (but that was a while ago and I
assume it got fixed a while ago).

Have you checked bugzilla?
I did not spot a bug that specifically addressed the problem of kernels
not being deleted.

When I do a kernel update, only the last two kernels are kept for me.
I do a yum update when I see a security update or once a week,
whichever time is less, so my system has the latest FC6 updates.

Disclaimer: I have not tried changing these defaults.
I have no connection with the people who maintain 
yum or installonlyn.conf
