Description

ticket #192 makes my desktop's task bar pretty useless for distinguishing my mc instances: the actually visible part of every window's title is now identical.
also, this additional information is useless in most cases.
if you want to do that right, the display must be selective: show only info which differs from the defaults. the locality and ownership of the session can be determined by querying the utmp database (on the command line, that would be the tty and who commands).
the less magic and more flexible approach would be allowing the user to specify what to put into the title manually - a patch has been proposed in http://mail.gnome.org/archives/mc-devel/2007-August/msg00004.html.

What about making the hostname in title configurable option? Detecting defaults might be relatively hard and source of possible errors ... of course, the mentioned more flexible approach is even better.
