Description of problem:
rhn_register choked and issued an error message when it tried to pass hardware 
info.  On the client, rhn_register continued to requested information to pass to 
the server, as if no registration had occurred.  Meeting the demands of the 
client caused multiple registrations with the server which were not discovered 
until after-the-fact. (up2date whine of exhausted channels.)

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


How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Get a system with the hardware that I have.
2. Leave checked the hardware reporting option of rhn_register.
3. Attempt to register.
  

Actual Results:  On the client, rhn_register continued to requested information to pass to the 
server, as if no registration had occurred. &c.

Expected Results:  The registration on the server should be deleted if rhn_register doesn't 
continue to the next step.
