Using the /etc/sysconfig/rhn/sources that comes with FC2test1, I just tried 
again ... the mirror server I got was distro.ibiblio.org and, again, I am up 
to date.

If I take out mirrors so I only go to download.fedora.redhat.com, things just 
"hang" ... I suspect that the server is just too busy.

IIRC, I did get through to download.fedora.redhat.com at least once and it 
also said I was up to date.

But, the rhn-applet says there are 1178 updates available and if I access it 
via gftp, the updated packages are there.  With download.fedora.redhat.com 
being so overloaded, it is counterproductive to try and download much from 
there.  I did get the updated kernel, up2date, and rhn-applet updates 
downloaded and then updated using up2date via a local repository.

Another thing that bothers me is that, although the updated packages are on 
download.fedora.redhat.com, none of the updates seem to have propagated to 
the mirrors.  I assume that the mirrors pull from some server other than 
download.fedora.redhat.com and that server appears to be out-of-sync.
