Carlos gave a way to turn susewatcher off,
and it sounds like that will solve your problem.

I ran into a similar problem as you reported.
However, I have noticed that if I do
# SuSEconfig --verbose
# rpm --rebuilddb
after I have downloaded using YaST whatever
whatever it tells me I need to update,
(even if I have updated using fou4s,
and if nothing is shown I still do
"accept" and "close" after marking "taboo"
the rpms I don't want to update (eg "kernel");
susewatcher is happy and doesn't falsely tell me that
security updates are available. YMMV.
