Description of problem:
I'm running RH9 on a laptop with different "profiles".  My RHN demo account was
originally registered on my office network where the DNS resolvers are in the
10.x.x.x address space.  However, my home network uses my ISP's resolvers on
public address space.  I've noticed that rhnsd/rhn_applet/up2date cannot
correctly resolve www.rhns.redhat.com (via tcpdump), as it's trying to use the
10.x.x.x nameservers.

I tried to "reset" my settings by restarting rhnsd, no luck.  Tried to find the
cached DNS information by performing a recursive grep on /etc and /var, but
couldn't find anything.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
up2date-3.1.23-1, rhn-applet-2.0.9-

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run rhn_applet

Actual Results:  Unable to connect to RHN.

Expected Results:  Connect to RHN.
