did you file bugreports? can you name them here?
bugs #511233, #511329

So, what about adding some simple check for broken symlinks which cause
at least warning? It can point to some problems with missing dependency
or other error..

if you can describe an algorithm that would detect those errors without
significant false positives, I can add a rpmlint check for it. However, I
would need some examples for testing first.

/usr/lib/rpm/brp-symlink is supposed to do this already, but obviously
didn't work in this case. Tomas, in which packages did you find the
dangling symlinks?

Packages affected - desktop-data-SLED, dmraid.
