Description of problem:
If I ssh to another system and start redhat-config-users

certain users exist on one system and not another) to
tell which system the window comes from.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:

tell which is which.
Expected Results: The window title (or at least a menu item) should give hostname.

when the actual problem is a much larger issue. I think the most feasible
answer is for the user to be careful when are running an application through an
