worse comes to worse, you can remove samba-vscan and then re-install it
- get the source-rpm and edit the SPEC file either commenting out the
dependency or changing the dependency to the updated samba rpms that you
have installed (but of course it sets you up for having to deal with it

My thinking is that the samba-vscan could ***probably*** be installed
with --nodeps (never done it myself)

NEVER use --force unless you are prepared to live with the consequences.
