Xpra: Ticket #2765: xpra bug-report collecting sensitive information

Hi, I wonder if it is really necessary for the bug-report tool to collect certain pieces of information, given that they will be pasted on a public forum. For instance, I wonder if it is necessary to spill out the public hostname and a valid username of a machine at the same time. My fault not to check before pasting, but I think many people will do like me particularly if they are in a hurry.

There are toggles to choose what gets included.

Every bit of information can be useful, including usernames, hostnames, connection information, etc.

System toggle is described as "Xpra version, platform and host information". May I suggest that this is at least made a bit more explicit like "Xpra version, platform and host information including hostname and account information".

Thanks. May I also suggest obfuscating also the full name of the user? Does not matter to me, but may be appreciated by some...
