Fedora 9 and packaging

I ran into a weird issue with Fedora 9 today. Just before leaving home, I shut my laptop lid and headed out. In my auto rickshaw on Bangalore roads, I found my bag heating up. To my surprise, I found that the laptop failed to suspend. When I tried again, I saw a popup that said

Hibernate request refused, the package manager prevented the hibernate operation since it was in the middle on an uninterruptible operation or something similar. I had to manually kill all the packagekit processes and yum before I got the laptop to resume.

I should start filing the BUGS I find into bugzilla soon.
