Description

https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=597709
When you install the system, installer install all the packages, at some point
everything is done, and installer reboots.
Now, here is the problem -- installing can take some amount of time, so it is
not a guarantee user looks at the monitor. When user comes back, she/he cannot
be sure everything was fine -- maybe installer crashed in 99%, maybe there was
power outage, and so on.
So the wish is -- when everything is done, and installer is about to reboot
_stop_. Don't do any countdown timer, wait for the user, so he/she could see
everything was fine, and can click "next" to reboot and start his/her freshly
installed system.

This behaviour (automatically reboot after having completed phase1) is actually considered a feature by some people.

If yast2 crashed, it will return to linuxrc and stop there.
