+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #166868 +++
Description of problem:
This bug was spawned from 157070. See Comment #26 of that bug for more information.
When yum repo and unauthenticated http proxy port is used to install a package
(e.g. rhn-apache), a fatal python error occurs.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. register a RHEL 3 U5 system to webqa through unauthenticated http proxy via
the following command:
rhnreg_ks --username=<USERNAME> --password=<PASSWORD>
2. make sure the latest up2date is installed (up2date-4.4.4x-3)
3. schedule a package install (e.g. rhn-apache) via the web UI.
4. run rhn_check -vvv
Fatal python error. See attached traceback.
No fatal python error. Yum is accessed as expected and unauthenticated proxy
