don't show null as the default setup answer, use a different string to indicate it

(2:53:35 PM) joseph: mazz, my new agent now has a default IP of "null"
(2:53:37 PM) joseph: is that right?
(2:54:17 PM) mazz: http://jira.rhq-project.org/browse/RHQ-1223
(2:54:37 PM) mazz: yes, it is right. I should probably not show the string "null" - maybe just an empty string
(2:54:39 PM) joseph: very well
(2:54:43 PM) mazz: but for now, it is what it is
(2:54:46 PM) joseph: i did see that jira, but iddn't recall "null" being right
(2:54:56 PM) joseph: you should change that to some other special char
(2:55:02 PM) joseph: that will no doubt confuse users
(2:55:14 PM) mazz: yes, which is what I tried to say above
(2:55:38 PM) mazz: probably should show "!*"
(2:55:50 PM) mazz: since that's the special marker to indicate we fallback to system defaults
(2:55:56 PM) mazz: either that or just an empty string
(2:56:25 PM) joseph: or maybe something like "dynamic", "non-static", "rotating", "changes", etc
instead of showing the string "null", we show the "!*" string since this is the notation that the user must enter to set the value as the internal default (which is what null represents in this context)
QA Verified, we now use !* for indication.
