Description

The dialog that pops up when making a connection and asks for the username and password (in case they have not been saved) has a title named "Login". While this is not an issue for many users, it is not very convenient for those who use the "Auto-Type" feature of several password managers, like it happens with KeePass or KeePassX and several others. The "Auto-Type" feature can identify the relevant password entry by the title of the window that has the focus (of course the title has already been stored in the entry's settings within the password manager). That dialog having the generic title "Login" is not very helpful in such cases and an extra step is required by the user; that of the selection of the proper entry in the password manager.

By making the dialog's title a little more descriptive containing server specific information, it would resolve this little problem very easily. Suggestions:

Enter a username and password for {hostname.example.com}

Enter a password for {username@hostname.example.com}  <-- In case the username has been saved.

Login at {hostname.example.com}

Thanks in advance.
