Error recovery

When GIMIAS starts, sometimes it crashes because there's an error in the config.xml file or a plugin crashes when loading it. To fix this issue, GIMIAS will log the status of the Kernel when starting and next time it's started will show an error message to the user and will allow to configure it again.
