The translatable string is _("%s on %s") and it will have a comment for

'username on hostname' is a potential minefield for L10n teams - is this
really required ?

The main point of the comment in the UI review was to have the hostname visible /somewhere/ in the window (so that someone who walks up to a locked display can still find out the hostname, which is quite often useful)... on reflection I'd agree that "username on hostname" probably wasn't the best suggestion though.

If anyone can suggest any nice, l10n-friendly ways to do this, feel free-- otherwise, we should probably just file it as a bug and fix it in 2.16 when we've had more time to think about it.
