Description of problem:
If you point /etc/sysconfig/.../up2date to a host that doesn't exist
and run rhn_register (GUI version), it tries the host several times
(printing out the hostname that it is trying to stdout/stderr each
time, and then brings you to the "Why Register" page without any
dialog box, etc. indicating that the host was not found.
