Description of problem:
I have been installing limbo repeatedly to get more details for another bug.
After install, up2date prompts me to register my system. I do so, but when I
go the RHN web page, I have multiple profiles for the same system.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. (re)install limbo
2. post install register
3. visit RHN web page
Actual Results: Registered multiple times for same system
Expected Results: Use existing registration
My RHN login is firstname.lastname@example.org. The profile in question is
When I reinstalled yesterday afternoon, a new profile was _not_ added, but this
morning's reinstall created yet another duplicate profile. I'm not sure what
was different yesterday, as I was trying to recreate a different bug, so I was
not really paying close attention to the details of this one.
The defauly behaviour is to allow duplicate profile names. The
name is just a string, with no requirements on uninqueness, so
duplicates are allowed.
