i upgraded from rhl9 to fc1 and had the same problem with yum.
thanks to daniel's advice, i found the problem was indeed caused
by conflicting libxml2 libraries installed by nusphere rpms for
an evaluation copy of a php editor (NuSphere's PhpED). once i
removed PHPed, yum was fine.
for slightly more info and followup see

- the shared libs in your path are not the ones from RPM
- your installation got overwritten...
