Well, I hope you get to upgrade soon; RHEL3 is way past its use-by http://www.redhat.com/security/updates/errata/.
Regular support from RH ended Oct 2010. Even if you paid extra for Extended Life Phase, you've got less than 1 year left.

Thanks for the hint, but it applies only to the original poster from years ago. I've already rebuilt this 6.2 box. But I'm still wondering, what that was... I had doublechecked the RPM database and there were no packages / libraries from RH being overwritten. Just a bunch of applications from EPEL, CentOS and RepoForge which should not mangle the core system.

Do you have yum-priorities setup?
With mixed srcs, its important, can be critical.
I'd go Centos, EPEL, rpmforge in that order (in fact I have )

It was SELinux

Just for the record: this was SELinux.
I did not knowingly install it - this comes by default
and interferes from time to time where it shouldn't.
