I know there's already uuid, but it would be nice to display hostname as well, to make it easier to distinguish clients to humans.
easily done, and the info stuff is due some work anyway
done in r2209, here is a sample log message from the server:
2012-12-09 17:01:02,957 Python/Gtk linux2 client version 0.8.0 connected from 'desktop'
Note: the uuid has been dropped to "debug" log level, and we also show the server's hostname on the session info 'Connection' tab.
No such thing as an easy/cheap change.. Spent a few hours trying to figure out why I was getting random hangs, until I narrowed it down on this change.
socket.getfqdn can be expensive at times (5 seconds or more) so we now do it on startup only (see r2217) - we may even want to do this in a separate thread to allow the server to start quicker, which would also mean accepting the first client before these values are available.
