All tasks aborted after registration to RHN Classic

Description of problem:
Regardless to whether the system is registered by task or manually, all the remaining tasks are aborted.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
beaker current live
always with RHEL-6.4 (did not try any other distro)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Clone job 445415
2. See the logs
Every task after /installation/entitlement/RHN/units/register is aborted.
All the tasks run successfully.
It looks like RHN registration broke yum:
Error: failed to retrieve repodata/3e7d01fc2f00baf584414c50eaf3c7c0e6f9e123bf877036dd4539f877704d27-primary.xml.gz from rhel-x86_64-server-6
error was [Errno 14] PYCURL ERROR 7 - "couldn't connect to host"
package installation-installation-content-testing-units-verify-content is not installed
which is why all subsequent tasks failed to install. The harness installs tasks using yum, so I'm not sure if there is anything else it could do here. The only solution I can offer is "don't break yum".
In the (distant?) future tasks will be installed by fetching a tarball over HTTP or from git-archive (bug 554844), so that the harness won't depend on a working yum configuration.
