The mozilla-psm and mozilla-nss RPMs both contain the file
/usr/lib/mozilla-1.4a/libnssckbi.so. It should probably be removed from mozilla-psm.

The mozilla-dom-inspector and main mozilla RPMs both contain the file
/usr/lib/mozilla-1.4a/defaults/pref/inspector.js. It should probably be removed
from the main mozilla package.

This may not be an annoyance when using RPMs, but it is when using dpkg (with
.debs created from the RPMs using alien).

I have noticed this with the GTK2 nightly builds, but it may be a problem for
the standard trunk RPMs as well.

inspector.js is an installer (not RPM) problem.  it is included in the browser
files as "defaults/pref/*" and then explicitly in the inspector files.  the RPM
build script uses the installer list to compile lists of files for the RPMs.

Mozilla doesn't distribute RPM packages anymore: any RPMs are packaged by some Linux distributor such as RedHat, Novell/SuSE etc.
