Hi Antoine,

For those (like myself) who connecting to more than one xpra instance at the 
same time one tiny improvement could be very valuable:

At the moment xpra tray icon do not provide any information about which server 
we're connected to or to which screen number. When running two or more xpra 
client instances it is impossible to distinguish one from another and 
therefore very hard to find the one you want to disconnect from.

Would it be easy to implement a tiny helper message with server info on mouse 
hover and add one more line to Session info dialog?

I'd like to have line like

  "Connected to    deblab ( :11"

in session info and something similar on mouse hover above xpra tray icon.

Also console message "Attached (press Control-C to detach)" could be improved 
to include this information.

Thank you very much.
