      Description

      Description of problem:
      rgmanager can promote a non-ready backup HA broker to primary when other backup brokers are available in the ready state. This can result in loss of messages and broker configuration. Additionally, this can cause the previously ready backups to throw exceptions when connecting to the new primary:

      Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
      Qpid 0.18

      How reproducible:
      100%

      Steps to Reproduce:
      1. Start a primary and backup broker
      2. Inject messages into the primary and ensure messages replicate to backup
      3. Restart the primary broker and manually re-promote to primary

      Actual results:
      Restarted broker becomes primary

      Expected results:
      Restarted broker refuses to become primary since at least one ready backup was discovered within some timeout
