  yum -y install gtk2

install the i386 version. Why the regression?
Not regression, change of default behavior.  Many, many folks disliked that.

controlled via conf parameter multilib_policy (in /etc/yum.conf) as
multilib_policy=best
which is the current, default behavior or,
multilib_policy=all
to install all available archs, matching F8.

This option doesn't seem to work. I try to install a package for which there is both an i386 version and an x86_64 version and it still only installs the x86_64 version.
