NavigatorDisplayerimplementation, it should call this method just before its UI shows up (before the enclosing TopComponent is opened) to actually initialize the navigator. From this point the navigator observes the TopComponent and once it is opened, it starts collecting panels from the providers and passing them to the displayer.
