This defacts causes System Acceptance test failures on hudson running againt

version facter=>“1.5.8-93-g469d2a2”, puppet=>“2.6.4-493-gea34876”

Report directory not created on agents upon initial start-up/connect with Puppet master.

Several acceptance tests report:

err: Report store failed: No such file or directory - /var/lib/puppet/reports/cent-55-386-1.local

While this is not a fatal error for many test cases, it certainly prohibits storage report data.
