Description of problem:
rhn_register doesnt allow registration of new profile on pre-existant user
Steps to Reproduce:
2.login with pre-existing username, password, email address
Actual Results: rhn_register reports that the username already exists, as
an error, which is not the proper behavior, considering that we're trying
to register a new system profile under the username
Expected Results: rhn_register should have continued register the new
system profile under the pre-existant username

I've even tried using info from a customer that was working with to
test the system against our qa enviroment, and was able to register
with the username/password correctly.
If anyone knows a reliable way (or heck, _any_ way) to reproduce this,
I can probabaly track it down.
Every case that I have seen of this has come down to the user was using a
password other than what they thought they were using. Guess we can just sit on
this one for a little while and see if anything else pops up about it.
