Description of problem:
The installer prompts for information to generate an SSL certificate
however this fails if the passphrase specified contains spaces,
presumably due to poor quoting in the code.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run satellite installer
2. When key generation screen appears, enter a passphrase including
spaces in the first field.
Actual Results: Installer does not display success dialogue. Log
indicated failure. Trace indicates useage message from 'openssl
genrsa' has displayed, indicating incorrect useage. Certificate RPM
Expected Results: SSL certificate RPM generated.
Workaround: don't use spaces in passwords.
Mihai has a handle on this... it affects sign.sh as well...
Bumping it's priority as well.
Should be fixed in HEAD.
Doesn't lok like this got in the latest - rhn-satellite-3.1.5-5
Traceback (innermost last):

Todd says this has been fixed in HEAD. Will build newer satellite ISOs.
Fixed a long... long time ago. Just need to verify.
Oops... nevermind. It's fixed. Closing.
