Description of problem:
When there is server set like this in the /etc/sysconfig/rhn/up2date:


I can not register. When I register with correct server in the config and then 
set it like this ^, `yum install ...` and so works.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. change /etc/sysconfig/rhn/up2date to contain serverURL like that ^
2. # rhn_register

Actual results:
