 I am thinking about taking a look at this, and improving the general
 frontend startup for when the database or backend are down. Currently if
 the database is down the user is prompted for country and language. This
 is not appropriate behavior. It should warn that the database is
 inaccessible and allow the user to wait for it to come up and allow the
 user to wait or exit. If the database is up and the backend is down it
 does just that, although it fills up the log with repeated error messages
 while retrying.

 If you set up a database wake on lan string it behaves somewhat better if
 it can wake the database, although while it is waking the database the
 screen is blank.

 Let me know if you would like me to take over this ticket, and make some
 startup improvement at the same time.
