Yum output about the broken packages situation

PackageKit doesn't inform about broken depencies when installing packges but fails silently. In the Gnome user interface, status goes:
Resolving depencies

And the returns to state picking packages. I would expect information failed installation because of broken depencies in packages.

My system is up to date Fedora 13. I tried to install xguest, contacts and dates applications, I attached yum output of the installation I tried after PackageKit failed.

Version of PackageKit
