Raising to Blocker because I already know that this will - again - break
installations as it did with 10.1 already.

It's reproducible in the following way:

- Create a YUM repo with A depending on B, B depending on C etc., until G
- Modify C after the metadata have been generated, to simulate a read error
- Use sw_single, select A for installation, it will pull in all dependencies
- Do the installation. It will install G, F, E, and D. As soon as it tries to
install C, it will inform you about the read error.
- Select IGNORE. But what it will actually do is: ABORT.

Expected result: IGNORE means IGNORE, so it should go on with B and A.

Actual result: IGNORE is taken as ABORT, the installation is still completely
cancelled because of one failed package, and it does not even run SuSEconfig
afterwards. During a "real" system installation or upgrade, it would probably
even leave the hard disk in a mess etc.

It seems that the fix of bug 181658 just doesn't work. This is unfixable after
the release because it breaks initial installation => Blocker
