Comment 3 Michael Mráka 2012-06-14 05:01:23 EDT
The issue has been fixed in spacewalk master by
commit a96b7e2e784bb7dcb5a7a95eebb43a0aeeee49d4
    829724 - use session based calls from rhnpush.uploadLib
commit 1bd9af9891f3d2a3a7dc251789b3803beaf10ba5
    829724 - modified checkSync() to use session based authentication
commit 9fbc16fae1647b4b25d702cb92cc4f34011a3dd5
    829724 - session based authentication needs --new-cache and --no-cache
commit 271f618cb0a2ba32bbc2e8b299aa30fb6019486c
    829724 - use session based authentication
    once we push packages via /APP we can reuse session based authentication
    from rhnpush
commit f75f2af00191f22109333dbd433ce1d6bc1c577b
    829724 - /XP handler defines small subset of /APP handler functions
    so let's use /APP directly; moreover this is the only tool which uses /XP
