This has been discussed many times, and detailed in the bug report.
Broken == can't bootstrap an OS with yum, with yum/misc.py importing the
wrong python module (so yum just crashes each time yum/misc.py is involved).
The fact that you are saying that your yum is "perfectly working", I
really don't think so, it's just pure hazard that in your environment
you don't use yum/misc.py. What exactly are you doing with yum?
