+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #636816 +++
Description of problem:
In Satellite 5.2 and 5.3 (possibly in other versions as well), if you have a clone of a cloned channel, the clone of a clone will have already cloned errata listed as available to the channel.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Red Hat Network Satellite 530
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Clone a Red Hat base channel using the current state of errata
2. Clone the channel that you created in Step # 1 using the current state of errata
3. Click Channels-->Manage Software Channels-->Original Cloned Channel-->Errata-->Add-->Add Red Hat Errata-->View Associated Channels-->View Associated Errata...note the number of packages. This will likely be 0 unless you have since Satellite-synced.
4. Repeat Step 3, except use the Clone of the Cloned channel. It will contain thousands of errata. Or at least a number that is different than the channel it is cloned from
The clone of a clone has errata listed that it already owns.
The clone of the clone and the clone itself should have the same errata available to it.

When testing I was able to reproduce this issue in Satellite 5.2, but not 5.3 or 5.4. Is there still a desire to get this fixed in 5.2 or has the customer updated to a newer Satellite?

I am still able to reproduce this issue on Satellite 5.4.1:
1.) Clone rhel-x86_64-server-5 to clone-rhel-x86_64-server-5, with no errata.
2.) From the channel's Errata > Add > Add Red Hat Errata tab, select a single advisory, e.g.,
RHBA-2007:0110 module-init-tools bug fix update 3/14/07
and click Confirm > Clone Errata.
3.) From the channel's Errata > List/Remove tab, confirm that CLA-2007:0110 is in the channel. Back on Errata > Add > Add Red Hat Errata, confirm that 2,153 errata are listed.
4.) Clone clone-rhel-x86_64-server-5 to clone-clone-rhel-x86_64-server-5, with no errata.
5.) From the channel's Errata > Clone tab, select "Clone as CL-2007:0110" from the Action column for CLA-2007:0110, then click "Clone Errata", then "Update Errata".
6.) From the channel's Errata > List/Remove tab, confirm that the clone-of-a-clone CL-2007:0110 is in the channel. Back on Errata > Add > Add Red Hat Errata, select "Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5" from the Channel Version list, then click "View Associated Channels". Select "Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 for 64-bit x86_64)" from the Channel list, then click "View Associated Errata". Note that there are 2,154 errata in the list.
The extra advisory in this list, compared to the first channel, is RHBA-2007:0110. This shouldn't be in the list, as CL-2007:0110 already provides the same packages.

reverting these two commits due to performance regression (more info Bug 839611)
The Bug was most probably fixed by previous commits and we wasn't able to reproduce it.
A minor fix - to pre-select correct channel version ...
Moving ON_QA. Packages that address this bugzilla should now be available in yum repos at http://yum.spacewalkproject.org/nightly/
