Which has nothing to do with yum bombing out, right?

The OP has two problems, one is a know feature/bug from yum (just set
installonly_limit in yum.conf to 0 and see yum be happy again
concerning old kernels and packages depending on them).

The other problem is a real issue - no matter what the dependencies
and installonly_limit messing with them a traceback means some
malfunction in yum itself. Probably worth filing into bugzilla.

Still trying to put the blame on "unofficial" packages is less than
fair.
