Description

lightdm does not have centered display of hostname on the login screen displayed on right, where it used to be since recently and where rest of the icons are, but on some undetermined place on the login screen.
It looks nonestethic and ugly. (Every time I look at it it seems to me like it is buggy by location on the screen)

It would be better to have hostname one the right like it was before, until recently.

This should be included in the first 2017 Openindiana snapshot as described during bug creation instead of targeting it to 'hipster' (when?).

Suggested solution (and current workaround):
Suggest default lightdm line in /etc/lightdm/lightdm-gtk-greeter.conf to be:
indicators=~a11y;~spacer;~host;~session;~clock
(one spacer left out so it is aligned to the right, like before, removing power button for unauthorized access)
That also fixes:
