Moving to 6.2 since that's the next tracker and the bug needs to be fixed in the master branch, but this bug will only manifest on el5 (just fyi for developers).

Fix in subscription-manager.git master branch: cfbd5a361a8fd4210e8fb27fc9b317e8f547ee25

handle_exception method now checks if we're looking at a SystemExit exception, and if so skips all the processing / printing of the exception message. (as this is a pretty clear indication we already did some error handling and called sys.exit)
