Description of problem:
rhn-applet-tui does not ignore the package(s) listed in my ~/.rhn-applet.conf
file.  (IgnoredPackages=)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Replaced gnuplot with gnuplot-3.7.1-17 from RH 7.3
2. Started Xwindows
3. Looked at the window from rhn-applet-gui.  It stated there was a newer 
version of gnuplot, as it should.
4. I instructed rhn-applet-gui to ignore gnuplot. 
5. Tested rhn-applet-gui again -- it showed no packages needed updating
6. Exited out of Xwindows
7. Looked at ~/.rhn-applet.conf
   Here is the relevant line:
8. ran rhn-applet-tui

it still showed that I needed gnuplot

Actual Results:  $ rhn-applet-tui 
could not figure out kernel

The following is a list of outdated packages on your system:

Name                                     Version         Release             
gnuplot                                  3.7.2           1                   

(The kernel message is expected because I am running 2.4.19)

Expected Results:  None ... rhn-applet-tui should not have reported any packages
to update

Okay I have a fix locally for this, this should be corrected in the
next release.
