shows auto-attach dialog
Description of problem:
The auto attach dialog has a Cancel and Next button. The Cancel, which a user might want to do is non-functional, and it seems to me the Next button is unnecessary.
Also, the progress bar does not have a blue slider at all, it is empty. So there is no information to the user provided what is going on.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to All Available Subscriptions
2. Click the Auto Attach button
Please re-check the latest subscription-manager-gui to determine if this is still a bug or has been fixed by an other bug.
So the Cancel button will cancel out of auto attaching, but the Next button still seems useless to me, and in fact is confusing.
It seems that the Next button should not be there, unless there is a compelling use case for it.

auto attach dialog that shows need of 'next/attach'
Not sure I understand this bug.
The 'Auto-attach' dialog can required multiple steps.
Not always, but not uncommon either. Either
on contract selection or on 'Confirm Subscriptions' for example.
https://github.com/candlepin/subscription-manager/tree/alikins/register_dialog_cancel_button_again is a branch
with a change to make the 'Auto-attach' dialog include normal
window decorations including 'cancel'.
That branch also adds back the 'Cancel' button.
(need to do the rhel6 glade for it yet, so not a pr yet)
We can;t reasonably kill the async process. The user can manually unsubscribe once the process completes.
