Description of problem:
We have an rhn proxy server on site, but /etc/sysconfig/rhn/up2date is
re-written each time up2date run, which means our settings to relay
through our local rhn proxy are removed.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Change /etc/sysconfig/rhn/up2date to have local rhn proxy server
for http and https URLs (http[s]://rhn.mtroyal.ca/XMLRPC)
2. Copy new up2date to up2date.bak
3. Run up2date -l (or any other command)
4. diff -u up2date.bak up2date

Actual Results:  bash# diff -u up2date up2date.bak
