Carlos gave a way to turn susewatcher off,
and it sounds like that will solve your problem.

I ran into a similar problem as you reported.
However, I have noticed that if I do 
# SuSEconfig --verbose
# rpm --rebuilddb 
after I have downloaded using YaST whatever 
whatever it tells me I need to update,
(even if I have updated using fou4s, 
and if nothing is shown I still do
"accept" and "close" after marking "taboo" 
the rpms I don't want to update (eg "kernel");
susewatcher is happy and doesn't falsely tell me that
security updates are available.  YMMV.
