Bug Description

[Impact] User confusion in OEM projects: see full bug description.
[Test Case] Perform an OEM install and check that, during the end-user configuration stage, the back button is only displayed on the second and subsequent pages.
[Regression Potential] Confined to the end-user configuration stage; it's all conditionalised so that ordinary installs won't be affected.

Original report follows:

On the first page of oem_user_config, where you select your Language, the "Back" button is present, although it is set to be insensitive (i.e. you can't really click on it and do anything since there is no previous screen to show). Technically, the button is supposed 'grayed out', but, I'm guessing that the gtk themeing in use makes the button appear to be more clickable than it really is.

Since the bulk of our OEM projects utilize oem_user_config, it has been requested that we either:

1) Hide the "Back" button altogether on this screen
2) Gray out the "Back" button so that the user cannot click it (which it already is, but it doesn't appear obvious).

This is mostly cosmetic, but, it can also help avoid potential confusion with users when they fire up their pre-loaded machines for the first time.

I've found a way to hide the back button in oem_user_config on the first page as well as un-hide it on subsequent pages. I've also tested the proposed 'fix' and it doesn't appear so far to cause any regressions.

I'd like to have this included in upstream as well as 12.10 and 12.04, with emphasis on 12.04 since our OEM projects are based on the LTS release.
