From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.7) Gecko/20050416 Fedora/1.0.3-2 Firefox/1.0.3

Description of problem:
while using yum to remove cups (yum remove cups) the Yum program removed all programs that use cups in some way or the other, a total of 101 other packages was removed, including openoffice and gnome.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
cups 1:1.1.23-15

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.yum remove cups
2.answer yes on questions

Actual Results:  the Gnome windowmanager has vanished, as has the openoffice package, among several other things

Expected Results:  the cups package removed, not all other programs that use it, but not truelly depend on it.

"Don't do that then."

The dependencies are real.  The yum program obviously didn't make it clear to
you what it was going to do.
