Raise the rpmnew issue with RedHat if you will.

Easily fixed by setting 'group_attribute' to 'Sql-Group', i.e. In
queries.conf put this line:

group_attribute = 'Sql-Group'?

It may even be that this is actually *in* one of the .rpmnew files that
you just deleted. 

Have a look at the 3.0.13 tree on Github.
