Description of problem:
During rhn_register form the command line it fails with this :
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/sbin/rhn_register", line 76, in <module>
File "/usr/share/rhn/up2date_client/rhncli.py", line 74, in run
sys.exit(self.main() or 0)
File "/usr/sbin/rhn_register", line 58, in main
File "/usr/share/rhn/up2date_client/tui.py", line 1272, in main
File "/usr/share/rhn/up2date_client/tui.py", line 1220, in run
win = self.windows[index](self.screen, self)
File "/usr/share/rhn/up2date_client/tui.py", line 678, in __init__
hardware_text += hw['ipaddr'] + " "
<type 'exceptions.TypeError'>: unsupported operand type(s) for +: 'NoneType' and 'str'
I suspect this is due to my computer having issues with network connectivity. It failed 2 times, then I was able to get past the hardware info screen (but it failed to connect to RHN) and on the next run it failed again with this traceback.
This is on a freshly installed 6.1 Workstation system.

Steps to Reproduce:
Setting devel ack -- fix is in Spacewalk master, e13f9db192792fe9501b884c5a595cccc887ede6.
For QA: this should likely happen if the client is IPv6-only machine.
This will be fixed as side effect of bug 767679.
Leaving for QA to test.
