Description of problem:

API call 'system.setChildChannels' removes all child channels  if "redhat-rhn-proxy*" is passed as parameter.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Satellite 5.5

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Sync the following channels to Satellite:
satellite-sync -c rhel-x86_64-server-6 -c rhn-tools-rhel-x86_64-server-6 -c 
2. Register EL6 system.
3. Execute the following script with the ID of the system registered in [2].

import sys, xmlrpclib

client = xmlrpclib.Server(RHN_SERVER, verbose=0)
key = client.auth.login(RHN_USER, RHN_PASS)


Actual results:
No child channels are assigned to the system.

Expected results:
Channel : 'rhn-tools-rhel-x86_64-server-6' is assigned to the system.

Unless you do not list the 'rhn-tools-rhel-x86_64-server-6' channel label within the system.setChildChannels parameters, your server will be unsubscribed from the channel.

Check the API doc:
Subscribe the given server to the child channels provided. This method will unsubscribe the server from any child channels that the server is currently subscribed to, but that are not included in the list. The user may provide either a list of channel ids (int) or a list of channel labels (string) as input.

Your server won't be subscribed to the proxy channel as the only possibility how to get subscribed into the proxy channel is the proxy activation.

It looks like NOTABUG for me.
