[SLUG] RPM badness


I've just upgraded a system from Red Hat 6.2 to 7.1 incrementally
(RPM by RPM).  Everything worked fine, but after a reboot (for a new
2.4.6 kernel) the RPM database is confused -- rpm -qa reports only
34 packages installed, the files in /var/lib/rpm are way too small,
and packages which are clearly installed aren't reported.

Is there any way to recover from this -- can I put RPMs back into
the database somehow?  (Could I just
	rpm --replacepkgss -U
everything?
