Profile sync fails via proxy

Description of problem:
Tried to do a profile sync on a system connected to the satellite via
an RHN proxy. The sync required many packages to be downgraded.
This failed with a 'package not found' error on the first packages
that needed downgrading, presumably because it did not exist on the proxy.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
satellite 3.4, proxy 3.2
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Configure a profile sync for a server connected via a proxy.
2. Run rhn_check on the server.
Actual Results: Failure - unfortunately do not have log results, but
the packages were not available on the proxy - there was a message
saying 'Mapping does not exist' or similar.
Expected Results: profile sync should have worked.
Workaround: temporarily point the server directly at the satellite
rather than at the proxy (/etc/sysconfig/rhn/up2date)
Can someone pick this up? British Airways are waiting on this.
Todd, can you please have a look?
Needs to be an issue tracker. Sorry I this did not crop up on my radar
created proxy 3.2 on rhel2.1
used sat on farm03
kickstarted another machine to rhel3u4, registered to proxy
did a package sync profile through web ui
rhn_check -vvv gave a file not found
worked when re-registered through the satellite and synced to the same
Created attachment 105561 [details]
rhn_check -vvv run when registered against a proxy
Created attachment 105562 [details]
rhn_check -vvv run when registered against a satellite (worked)
Created attachment 105564 [details]
what actions were performed, same for proxy and sat
upon further investigation, i found that in both cases the profile
sync fails, if the machine is connected directly to a satellite the
error message is only displayed on the satellite's webui and not
What precisely is failing though?
