Description of problem:
During post-install configuration I received this error:

An error has occurred in the Activate module
Traceback (most recent call last)
  File "/usr/share/firstboot/firstbootWindow.py", line 48, in
loadModules vbox, pix, title = module.launch()
  File "/usr/share/firstboot/modules/rhn_activate_gui.py", line 90, in
launch self.setupScreen()
  File "/usr/share/firstboot/modules/rhn_activate_gui.py", line 83, in
setupScreen vbox = self-activatePagePrepare()
  File "/usr/share/rhn/up2date.client/rhnregGui.py", line 336, in
activatePagePrepare if hostname:
UnboundLocalError: local variable 'hostname' referenced before assignment.

Since there is a problem with the Activate module, Red Hat Setup Agent
will not load this module and will attempt to run the remaining modules.

Please file a bug against 'firstboot' in the Red Hat bug tracking
system at http://www.redhat.com/bugzilla. A copy of the debug output
has been saved to /root/firstboot.1105321553.53
Be sure to attach that file to the bug report.

This is actually a dup of another bug, but the other one appears to be private
so can't dup them.  Anyway this error is resolved with the 4.4.4 up2date version
(specifically tested with 4.4.5-1)
