In the case of multilib packages, it works it out because one is an .i386 or .i686 and one is a x86_64. It then upgrades the right one. To see what the packages are in each listing you can do a 'rpm -ql <package name>'.
The unbearable slowness of yum is not something I can help with. Especially the older yum that is on the Centos-3.8 boxes.. the difference in speed with python gui and python yum is one is dealing with a database and the other is moving pixels.
