Description of problem:
i had a corrupt systemid file and up2date (rhn_check, etc.) kept telling me that
my certifcate wa corrupt and to rerrun rhn_rgister to regen. well, as i found
out (painfully) rhn_rerister no longer exists. the solution to the problem is to
DELETE the /etc/syconfig/rhn/systemid and rerun up2date (et al.)

This error message comes from the server, so reassigning as a server
side bug.

Closing out.  Working correctly in the webqa environment.
