Printer dialog should use background thread for long-running networking
operations and should be fail-safe and user-friendly on the rainy-day scenarios
- not only when everything is fine (all remote servers are running and
accessible).

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Configure the system to make all printing to remote cups server
2. Switch off computer running this cups server (or disconnect it from network
or change ip address or stop cups server running on it)
3. Open yast printer configuration dialog
Actual Results:
I can see the busy cursor for 1 or 2 minutes, then receive dialog "cups server
not accessible" with ok button - click ok and get access to the config dialog,
but once I click somewhere on it I again receive busy cursor for 1/2 mins and
can do nothing with this.

Expected Results:
I must be able to interact with the config dialog while it is trying to connect
to remote cups server, see the connection progress info and be able to cancel
it before it finish.
