Description of problem:
The import of RHEL5-Server-Supplementary content doesn't appear to be cleaning up the samba3x tech-preview packages.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Export the latest rhel-x86_64-server-supplementary-5 channel.
2. Import it on a Satellite which has old rhel-x86_64-server-supplementary-5 channel with the tech-preview packages like 'samba3x'
3. After a successful import these packages are not being removed.
4. Now, if you remove the rhel-x86_64-server-supplementary-5 channel from the importing satellite server and sync it from RHN Hosted, you will see that these packages are being removed.
After a successful import these tech-preview packages are not being removed.
satellite-sync should behave in the same manner on channel dumps as it behaves when we sync a channel from RHN Hosted.
A workaround is to remove the old supplementary channel using spacewalk-remove-channel and then sync it again from the channel dumps.

Some other packages from the main RHEL5 channel that weren't cleaned up
from the 5.4 to 5.5 sync...
On the production disconnected classified satellite we have the x86_64
But these aren't on the connected satellite that we sync from.
