Bug Description

Binary package hint: landscape-client

landscape-client 1.0.28 has some critical bugs. The fixes should be put into jaunty.

We have prepared a bugfix-only release, 1.0.29, which has these fixes. The bugs are all filed against the landscape-client package already. Here is the list:

    - Add a timeout to HTTP operations to avoid hanging (LP: #349737)
    - Clean up environment variables on startup to avoid propagating
      variables that will corrupt package installation (LP: #348681)
    - Clean up FDs on startup for the same reason (LP: #352458)
    - Catch and handle certain errors from smart (such as invalid package
      data) to avoid "stuck" Landscape activities (LP: #268745)
    - Don't print warnings meant for developers to the console (LP: #336669)

Okay, I've attached the branch. If I'm unavailable for discussion, please contact Andreas Hasenack ('andreas' or 'ahasenack' on IRC) or Free Ekanayaka ('free' on IRC). I've attached a diff for easy reference, but the branch should be the canonical source.

The changes amount to 283 lines changed (278 added, 5 removed). Of these, 157 lines are in unit test files, leaving 126 for actual implementation changes.
