Default how to fix rpm database

yum and rpm have different ideas about wether three packages are installed:

[root@localhost log]# rpm -V 1:tk-8.5.9-2.fc14.i686
1:tix-8.4.3-5.fc13.i686 1:numpy-1.4.1-6.fc14.i686
package 1:tk-8.5.9-2.fc14.i686 is not installed
package 1:tix-8.4.3-5.fc13.i686 is not installed
package 1:numpy-1.4.1-6.fc14.i686 is not installed
[root@localhost log]# yum install 1:tk-8.5.9-2.fc14.i686
1:tix-8.4.3-5.fc13.i686 1:numpy-1.4.1-6.fc14.i686
Loaded plugins: langpacks, presto, refresh-packagekit
Adding en_US to language list
Setting up Install Process
Package 1:tk-8.5.9-2.fc14.i686 already installed and latest version
Package 1:tix-8.4.3-5.fc13.i686 already installed and latest version
Package 1:numpy-1.4.1-6.fc14.i686 already installed and latest version
Nothing to do
[root@localhost log]#

yum reinstall runs, but doesn't help.
What will.

This seems to have happened after I tried to play a
Macromedia Flash data (compressed), version 10 aka
Shockwave Flash file (application/x-shockwave-flash) .
The former came from the file command, the latter from right-clicking.
The first time, right-clicking produced an offer to search for a package.
I clicked on yes .
During the install, I got a "warning" about something aborting.
Now right clicking produces an offer to open
with vnc2swf Screen Recordings Player.
It doesn't work.
A window comes up and disappears without even achieving opacity.
How do I play the file?

The leading 1: is the Epoch, which is usually hidden in RPM and not
displayed unless you query package details or the Epoch explicitly. E.g.

$ rpm -qi tix | grep Epoch
Epoch : 1
$ rpm -q --qf %{epoch}
tix
1

Omit it when querying RPM. Run just

rpm -V tk-8.5.9-2.fc14.i686 tix-8.4.3-5.fc13.i686 numpy-1.4.1-6.fc14.i686

or leave out the version-release.arch part. Notice that RPM does not
print the Epoch, try:

rpm -q tk tix numpy
