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 = 18.104.22.168 is needed by (installed) up2date-gnome-22.214.171.124-1
/usr/share/rhn/RHNS-CA-CERT is needed by (installed) rhn-applet-2.0.9-0.9.0.1
Randy, is that ok to remove these packages ?
