[users] perl-IO-Compress-2.024 Depsolv issue

CentOS 5.5 x64, with yum priorities as below:

priority = 1 [addons]
priority = 1 [base]
priority = 1 [extras]
priority = 1 [updates]
priority = 2 [centosplus]
priority = 50 [rpmforge]
priority = 60 [c5-testing]

Yum update provides:

I notice this issue is not new:
http://comments.gmane.org/gmane.linux.rpm.rpmforge.user/1829

I have got around it by using yum update --skip-broken as suggested above,
but that's not a long term fix...

I found one suggestion of downgrading the package, but that was followed by
stories of not being able to reinstall subsequently removed packages... this
is a production mail server, so I need to keep spamassassin and amavisd
functional.

Is there any ideas on when the issue will be resolved? Or suggestions for
how I can fix it here?

Thanks.

Simon Wilson.
