    initial v1  
    55In the UI what I've done is mostly similar.  Even though I require that the field be filled in, the the field *starts out* filled in with the output from xpra.platform.info.get_username() (so the user would have to decided to clear it to get a blank field).  I think that this behavior is almost equivalent to the command line behavior that I just mentioned.

    7 The slight difference is (in my opinion) desirable: On windows my username doesn't match my username on the server that I am logging into.  My windows username has a space in it, and I think that that is pretty typical.  When, due to a bad username, my attempt to login fails my IP gets blocked (my server runs OSSEC).  I would bet that  lots of people have similarly configured server and would appreciate having the UI thusly steer them away from such mistakes.  I think as I've done things the UI protects the user while providing the benefits of sensible defaults.

    99If you want me to allow for the launcher entry fields to be blank, I *will* change it to do whatever you prefer.  Just say the word!
