Description of problem:

When reinstalling a SW Client, die client does not reconnect to the original system profile although the kickstart profile is set to "Re-connect to exixting system profile"

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Spacewalk Server 1.4 & 1.5 

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create kickstart profile in Spacewalk & set option to "Re-connec to existing system profile"
2. Install / and reinstall Client
Actual results:
New system profile is created.

Additional info:
Problem was introduced in SW 1.4 (1.3 was OK) is in Package spacewalk-java
File /var/lib/rhn/kickstarts/snippets/post_reactivation_key

It appears to be an indentation Problem in the Python Code (File in spacewalk-java-1.3.53-1.el5 works).
