SLES10 - SLES11 SP1 unattended upgrade not excluding gnome

SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 Service Pack 1
<remove-patterns config:type="list"> <pattern>gnome</pattern> <pattern>x11</pattern> </remove-patterns>Nevertheless gnome will be installed during the automated upgrade.
This is caused by the desktop check in the yast2-update, Update.ycp file. It will check the "DEFAULT_WM in /etc/sysconfig/windowmanger and if it is set to gnome it will cause the update/upgrade process to add the gnome pattern although explicitly excluded.
A temporary fix including the patch to correct the problem requires a DUD (Driver Update Disk). For SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 Service Pack 1 the most practical solution is to change the DEFAULT_WM.
