Multiple versions installed?

Hi, I am experiencing a strange (to me at least) behavior when
upgrading packages. Basically, I have package foo, version 3.1,
$ rpm -qivp foo-3.1-12345.x86_64.rpm
Version : 3.1
Release : 12345
After I install this with
rpm -ivh foo-3.1-12345.x86_64.rpm
it correctly appears in the list of installed packages with rpm -qa.
However, when I upgrade to release 12347 using the command
rpm -Uvh foo-3.1-12347.x86_64.rpm
sometimes both versions then appear in the list of installed packages:
$ rpm -qa | grep foo
The strange thing is that it doesn't happen always; sometimes only the
last one shows up (as should be, I think).
Is it possible that I'm doing something wrong or some meta information
is missing from my packages?
Thanks in advance.
