Thursday, after some (hard?) work I found out how to apply a patch to a source-RPM. applied the patch for #336627 on the SRPM from fedora.org, created and installed the binary RPMs and saw that it really works...

And yesterday I ran the Kickstart installation one more time to get rid of some non-fatal errors and saw that the packages available from YUM repositoreis are patched with the same patch, too... Just wicked. Murphy, you are the best!

Anyway, thanks to the developers for reacting so fast and to David for showing the right way :-)
