Description
BackgroundDownloader creates bundles dir under lib on a completed JRE. 

Expected Behaviour:
BackgroundDownloader should immediately exit on a completed Kernel JRE. 

Steps to reproduce:
1. Download and install Kernel JRE.
2. Wait till Kernel JRE to complete ( download all bundles) 
3. instantiate completion process by executing a java program ( java -version)
4. Run Background Downloader (Z:\disk11\DTF3.1\DTF>java -Dkernel.background.download=false -Dkernel.download.securityenabled=null sun.jkernel.BackgroundDownloader)

Comments
EVALUATION It was the BackgroundDownloader PID file that was responsible for the directory creation. BackgroundDownloader now bails out immediately if the JRE is already complete, and I fixed a few issues that were cropping up with already-complete JREs that also have a lib/bundles directory.
