WebUI log:
Sync started: Fri Nov 12 09:40:55 2010
['/usr/bin/spacewalk-repo-sync', '--channel', 'bad-repo-channel', '--type', 'yum']

Expected results:
1. no traceback, but a nice error message
2. show the same error message on the WebUI, too

Please note that the reposync will also crash when a single package
cannot be fetched. That is tracked in the bug 667143.
