It's true that YOU knows about the update. On the two systems I have
running 8.2, YOU lists all kernel updates except for the kernel
installed (k_athlon and k_smp respectivly). I'd probably have found
them, had I done as you did...

Not true in my case. On both machines, YOU downloads the new patch *if*
(when) you proceed...

So the conclusions are; YOU knows about the patch, downloads it and ask
if you want to install, _but_ it does not show the patch in the list of
available patches...
