Why? Any bug report is helpful.

This sounds more like a bug in pirut than in atrpms. Perhaps it can't
cope with too many packages or too many package dependencies?

At any rate when pirut/kyum mess up one should always try to fall back
to using plain yum to see whether the bug is in the GUI wrapper. Not
that yum is infallible, but at least it narrows down the possibilities.
