Description of problem:
rhn_register choked and issued an error message when it tried to pass hardware
info. On the client, rhn_register continued to requested information to pass to
the server, as if no registration had occurred. Meeting the demands of the
client caused multiple registrations with the server which were not discovered
until after-the-fact. (up2date whine of exhausted channels.)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Get a system with the hardware that I have.
2. Leave checked the hardware reporting option of rhn_register.
3. Attempt to register.
Actual Results: On the client, rhn_register continued to requested information to pass to the
server, as if no registration had occurred. &c.
Expected Results: The registration on the server should be deleted if rhn_register doesn't
continue to the next step.
