Pain with newest up2date RPM's

Hi all,

Am having troubles with up2date, and updating to the latest up2date and 
rhn packages doesn't help.

# rpm -qa | grep rhn

rhnlib-1.4-1
rhn-applet-2.1.2-1


# rpm -qa | grep up2date

up2date-gnome-4.1.14-2
up2date-4.1.14-2


It doesn't seem to be enabling my proxy config.  Every time I right
click on the rhn applet and choose to configure it, the proxy info is in
there but it's always disabled.  (both proxy url and authentication
options unticked)


 From the command line though, if I do:

# up2date --configure

Then it shows the proxy info as being enabled however.  (both proxy url
and authentication options ticked)


If I try and register this system using:

# up2date --register

Then it just returns back to the shell prompt.


If I do:

# up2date --list

Then it just errors out with:

Fetching package list for channel: fedora-core-1...

Fetching
http://fedora.redhat.com/releases/fedora-core-1/headers/header.info...
There was some sort of I/O error: <urlopen error (111, 'Connection
refused')>
#


Looks like it's not taking into account the proxy info (it uses a proxy
that needs a username/password combo for getting through).

New bug report needed?

Regards and best wishes,

Justin Clift
