Two small bug fixes to load balancing. One for an uninitialized variable. The
other for turning off weight migration too soon before the final
imbalance factor was computed. Both could lead to valgrind issues
with unitialized memory being accessed or even a hang for the first one.

Thanks to Jon Bollinger (Sandia) for sending a test script to debug with.
