Description of problem:
If you run rhn_register --nox, and the host is not found, the URL's
that it is trying to contact (it will print it out about 4 times
before failing) should print with a \n so that it wraps nicely -- I
know it's lame, but if the user is going to see an error, at least let
them see it in a pretty fashion.
