register button

Description of problem:
Can we change the at-spi locator name for the register button next to the certificate status?  Its current name "Register" confuses it with the system menu register entry.  Because they share the same name, gnome and the at-spi libraries will randomly pick whatever object it happens to get first making the locator for this completely unreliable (and breaks automation).

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

How to reproduce:
 - Look at subscription-manager-gui with sniff/dogtail
 - Try to call the register button with an at-spi library across restarts of subscription-manager-gui

Actual results:
The "Register" locator randomly points to the menu item or the actual button.

Expected results:
- The menu item would remain unchanged.
- The Register button next to the Certificate status could have the locator "Register System" (as it did before).

register system

Testing with the latest in brew:

The button has been renamed 'Register System' and all is well again with automation.
