The earlier, the better, as some ruby package in core/release have 
already been contaminated:

installing ruby-rspec-mocks-2.6.0-1.mga3.noarch.rpm 
ruby-rspec-core-2.11.1-1.mga3.noarch.rpm from /var/cache/urpmi/rpms
Installation failed:
	ruby(abi) = 1.9 is needed by ruby-rspec-2.11.0-1.mga3.noarch

BOFH excuse #104:

backup tape overwritten with copy of system manager's favourite CD
