Description of problem:
When RHN is down, pup should display message saying that.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. # iptables -A OUTPUT -d -j REJECT   # rhn.redhat.com
   # iptables -A OUTPUT -d -j REJECT   # xmlrpc.rhn.redhat.com
   # echo '       rhn.redhat.com xmlrpc.rhn.redhat.com' >> /etc/hosts
2. # pup

Actual results:
RHN registration agent lunched

Expected results:
It should instead display the outage message.

Additional info:
I'm not sure if steps we used to simulate RHN outage are correct.
It behaves same with older pirut-1.2.10-1.el5.noarch => no regression.
This was discovered by psklenar.
