bitbake: ui/toasterui: Fix startup faults from incorrect event sequencing
Toaster has been failing to start correctly when in interactive mode. The issue is due to setEventMask being called (which triggers parsing) before the environment has been sent from the UI over to the server. This means PATH isn't setup, which causes the sanity checks on HOSTTOOLS to fail in base.bbclass. The fix is to ensure the environment is sent to the server before other commands are run. The pain in debugging this highlights other improvements to the logging are needed.
