[opensuse] Bug in xmms2 dependencies - packman (fyi)

Attempting to install xmms2, the core part complains that it cannot be
installed because there are no installable providers of, and
thus the package cannot be installed. The actual conflict file is:

#### YaST2 conflicts list - generated 2009-10-29 22:22:20 ####

nothing provides needed by

[ ] do not install

#### YaST2 conflicts list END ###

Checking the system with locate reveals:


Is already installed? What gives? Something is wonky with dependencies
because this isn't the only case where yast/zypper has complained about a
dependency that is already installed.

Now I know that packman packages are not the responsibility of
opensuse, and
I also know that the error references and i586 package of libavcodec51, but
the point is that this seems strange and I need to know if this is normal or
if there is a problem with dependencies that is larger than this one instance.

So first, has anyone else experienced this behavior? And, second, even
if you
haven't, any idea why I get an i586 dependency error on an x86-64 box where
the x86-64 shared object file is already installed?
