Both same and separate BE/FE.

I looked into this a few weeks ago and noticed a problem where the 
SignalMonitor on the backend was stopping before the frontend "knew" the 
signal was good.  Because of this, the lock timer in the frontend would 
timeout with the associated message.

I've attached a patch that I made to address this.  It keeps the "You 
should have gotten lock" message from appearing but the channel / 
program_info display gets screwed up (that's the main reason I didn't 
post it...)
