I have similar problem, if I do spacewalk-repo-sync to upload new updates
for prober update channel; spacewalk does not show that there is updates
available to the clients. 

If I run yum check-update on client, it will properly reveal that there is
updates available on spacewalk server. Running rhn-profile-sync on clinet
will do the trick but there was no such issue prior to 1.0.

No cobbler-web installed, but it seems Taskomatic stopped logging weeks ago.
The last few things it logged were exceptions trying to do postgresql stuff,
which is weird as I'm not trying to use pgsql at all.

Blew the cache away, restarted Spacewalk, and it all came good.  Thanks!
