dlehman - urlgrabber appears to maintain two lists of mirrors.  One list is an
immutable list of all the mirrors, and the other is subtracted from as mirrors
are tried.  When this second list is exhausted, that's when
YumBackend.mirrorFailureCB is called.  The problem here is that we're not
repopulating the second mirror list  when the retry button is clicked, so kaboom.

Mirror failure handling has improved as of anaconda- This specific
case is covered by these changes. Please reopen this bug if you find that the
problem persists.
