Unforunatly, rhnreg_ks does not give any output, even with the verbose flag.
The client shows up in Spacewalk (albeit four times - always same UUID, but 
different spacewalk system ID) - with mostly the correct channels. I am not 
sure where the difference in channel config comes from - but that might be due 
to the mess we have here with channel configs. So lets not focus on channel 
correctnes for now - if I get any channel repos configured correctly that would 
mean a big step forward.

Should I have deleted the client bevor re-registering it?

Any place where I could get more logs/output?
