With current unpatched code, when this happens -- are some of the
files deployed and some not, or is the whole deployment cancelled?
I am not completely sure it is correct to deploy half of the files
and not deploy the other half -- especially with the batch-oriented
processing of scheduled actions, you don't want the machine to be
left in an inconsistent state.

I assume that rhncfg-client get complains loudly about the files it
failed to deploy. From this point of view, it is tolerable that
rhncfg-client get would only deploy half of the files because there
is likely person running that command which would be able to respond
accordingly.
