there *is* an answer from Jeff today on 14:40 CET.
However, I'd suggest you do the following:
1. Backup your RPM database
2. Install rpm-5.1.x and rpm-libs-5.1.x. Since this may already leave a
broken RPM database (there are two RPM packages), You should run "rpm2cpio
FILE | cpio -idv" in some temporary directory to make sure you have a
backup RPM binary
3. Run rpm --rebuilddb
4. Try rpm -qa, if it fails, try removing the __db* files from your rpm db
directory, and re-run rpm --rebuild
This should get it working.
