Hi Matthew

Thanks very much for looking at this ..

yum remove kst-getdata : OK

but: yum remove getdata complains:
Resolving Dependencies
--> Running transaction check
---> Package getdata.x86_64 0:0.5.0-5.fc12 set to be erased
--> Processing Dependency: libgetdata.so.1()(64bit) for package: 
--> Running transaction check
---> Package kst.x86_64 0:1.8.0-3.fc12 set to be erased
--> Finished Dependency Resolution

So the _package_ dependency is there, even if the kst executable doesn't 
actually use it. Same result of course, incorrectly signed data plot.
