I was able to create and acces an account via rhn.redhat.com with
non-alphanumeric characters in the userid and password, but when I try to log
into the account from the Red Hat Update Agent on a newly installed RH8.0
machine the client tell me it was unable to log into the server due to invalid
char's in the userid and password.
