Yum is going berserk!
su -c yum-complete-transactionAfter thinking things over, it found the transaction and told me that there were 39 incomplete items that it would take care of. I kept an eye on the terminal to see what was going on, and it's a good thing, because suddenly it began spewing all sorts of packages that it was going to erase. I used ^C to kill it because I didn't want my system hosed. Before doing anything else, including another yumex update, I want to see if anybody has any ideas about what happened or how to prevent it from happening again.
BTW, this is the second time in less than a month that I've had a system update hang on this box. The last time it munged a kernel update badly enough to cause a kernel panic on reboot. I ended up booting into the previous kernel, followed by removing and installing the bad kernel to get grub.cfg fixed. Considering that preupgrade also hung, leaving my computer almost unusable, and that I never had the slightest trouble with earlier versions of Fedora, you can see why I say I "upgraded" to F16. I'm not at all favorably impressed by it and will be moving to F17 as soon as the inevitable teething troubles are ironed out.
(I've also posted the above via copy/paste to the fedoraforum to get this question seen by as many people as possible.)
