Why do I get a "Channel not found" error when exporting data from my 5.3 Satellite using the --start-date and --end-date options?

Issue

When using the --start-date and --end-date options with rhn-satellite-exporter the tool errors out with:

Error: Channel %s not found.

This is even though "rhn-satellite-exporter --list-channels" shows that
there are channels. When the date options are not used the tool is
able to export the data, but of course not only within the desired date
ranges.
