Don't know why this creates a conflict, but why isn't
libpng-2:1.2.42-1.fc12.x86_64 being updated to
libpng-2:1.2.43-1.fc12.x86_64 at the same time as the i686 update?

For an unknown reason the x86_64 is already updated.
I recommended to run "package-cleanup --cleandupes" to remove the old
x86_64 package or to try yum-complete-transaction, maybe this will clean
it up.

That's one of those many invalid -1 comments (and yet another reason why
karma is broken). You cannot mix different builds of the same package for
different multilib arches, it will always result in such file conflicts.
This is completely normal and you are not expected to fix this. The user
should be upgrading both arches of the package at the same time (or removing
the 32-bit multilib if it's not needed).
