Proposed patch

Description of problem:
The tsclient version in RHEL6 has no apparent means of passing the client
hostname to rdesktop. This is a regression with respect to the tsclient that
came with RHEL5.

This becomes a problem for users that have to specify a client hostname to
avoid the bogus "No valid license available" message that the terminal
server spits out after many connects - specifying a bogus client hostname is
the only way to make further connections to the server.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run "tsclient" in RHEL5.
2. Run "tsclient" in RHEL6, add a new connection of type "Windows Terminal
   Service Connection", look for an option to enter client hostname
Actual results:
1. Observe that the "Client Hostname" can be set in it for rdesktop client.
2. No option to enter client hostname information.

Expected results:
Option to enter client hostname information and have it passed to rdesktop.

Additional info:
Proposed patch (against upstream subversion's branches/tsclient-unstable
attached. The glade file part of this patch is fairly large due to changes
having been made through the glade-2 rather than directly. It can probably
be trimmed down for upstream submission.

Proposed patch

Revised patch - trimmed down the changes to the glade file.

I've verified that with this patch there are no additional glade warnings or Gtk messages beyond those that are generated with a build from unmodified upstream svn branch tsclient-unstable.
