Not that I disagree with te "Why" above, but what I found the strangest
about this problem is that the possibly "broken" rpm seems to be Suse's
official one.  It may well be not strictly compliant to whatever standard
RPM format may be, but it seems that it is at least as good as necessary
for Suse Linux to install it (but I haven't personally tested with Linux
yet, because it would require a lot of time to download ISO images and
disk space that I don't have available at the moment).

Thanks for the work.  Let me know if I an help in any way.

Best regards,
