Description of problem:
Cannot browse the GUI if the plugin scan task does not execute quickly.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Upload a new (version of a) plugin with various resource types (ie as7 plugin)
2.Wait for the plugin scan task to start (look at the server logs)
3.While the server is updating resource types, try to browse the GUI
Cannot browse the GUI and the server logs shows the attached stack trace
Can browse the GUI
The plugin scan is currently triggered with an EJB timer in a @Singleton bean (org.rhq.enterprise.server.core.StartupBean). Those beans by default have container managed concurrency. Without any annotations, the container serializes calls to the bean. So the AuthenticationFilter timeouts on its try to call org.rhq.enterprise.server.core.StartupLocal#isInitialized

<mazz> BTW, there are other @Singleton SLSBs we should examine for this same kind of thing
<mazz> I see two that we should look at
<mazz> (that's something jsanda put together for the storage stuff)
<mazz> and org.rhq.enterprise.server.auth.prefs.SubjectPreferencesCacheBean

That SubjectPreferencesCacheBean is OK - I remember doing this. Its explicitly marked as CONTAINER and we use the EJB LOCK annotations to ensure we have read/write locking around the appropriate places.
We should ask John S. just to confirm that SessionManagerBean is OK.
Fixed in master. See upstream BZ970177
As this is MODIFIED or ON_QA, setting milestone to ER1.
Able to access the GUI, while executing plugin scan task. There is no error/exception trace while running this task and able to access GUI.
