LinHES-system: add be_check.py and modify LinHES-session to use it.
This will stop mythfrontend/mythwelcome from starting if be_check can't connect to the master backend.
Mostly this was done to stop mythfronted from complaining about not being able to contact the MBE and in the worst case displaying the DB connection configuration screen.

  • Status changed from In Progress to Closed

Added option in mythinstall / advanced to enable or disable the delay of starting the frontend.

When delayed and a connection could not be established a msg will be displayed stating that fact.
Connections are tested with be_check.py which is a simple check of connecting to the master BE using the python bindings.
