Thanks, sounds like there won't be a fix other than having the user
remove the packages manually? I saw the bug was closed WONTFIX today by

Yepp, after I talked to him. The reason for your problem is a bug in the
11.1 boost packages that was fixed for 11.2 and that we can't really fix
for 11.1 without lots of work.

What you should do would be to do

zypper rm $(rpm -qa | grep 'libboost.*1_36.*')

noting the application packages zypper will want to delete and install
them new with 'zypper in'.

Sounds good - is there any reason why I wouldn't want to just use rpm to
remove the package? (ie, any database considerations?)
