ACK, nice work.

Tested with ticket 748. Everything worked with both --hostname set and
without it, uninstallation was also correct.

I just run into an issue (not patch related) when certmonger kept
showing me CA_UNCONFIGURED certificate tracking status. As we found out,
this was caused by SELinux. However, new SElinux policy
selinux-policy-3.9.7-33.fc14 should fix it.
