Problem with SLES10-SP2

Just this morning Novell posted a new TID:

Updates catalogs missing after updating libzypp

I've heard on the grape-vine that this particular libzypp update was put into the SLES10-SP1 channel in order to prepare for SP2's release. Those fine folk out there that have turned on Auto Updating on their SLE[S|D] boxes have very probably already been bit by it. I hope Novell gets this one fixed, and posts recovery steps, soon.
