Re: [PATCH rhel6-branch] Use progressbar instead of waitwindow for repo setup (#584996)

But I have problem with what Bill suggested - busy cursor being
preferred to pulse progress bar - that's exactly the opposite
of what the bug requires. For me, the pulse bar here suggests that
something is really happening more than the busy cursor
(mainly due to non-regularity of its pulsing :), but that
may be just my and reporter's feeling.

One advantage of pulse progress bar over busy cursor (wait
window) specific to Anaconda's non-threaded UI is that with every pulse,
the screen gets refreshed. When you are impatient and e.g. move
waiting window, the background is cleared without refresh
which adds to doubts that install is stuck, while with pulse
bar window, the background is repainted with next pulse
suggesting that Anaconda is really alive.
