Actually i have the same problem, but when i tried to remove the up2date package, it failed because of dependencies.
 up2date is needed by (installed) firstboot-1.0.5-11
 up2date = is needed by (installed) up2date-gnome-
 /usr/share/rhn/RHNS-CA-CERT is needed by (installed) rhn-applet-2.0.9-

Randy, is that ok to remove these packages ?
