Ok. That is not particularly surprising, since a service name may have
the maxium length of 63 characters. And prepending "Remote Terminal
on" to a hostname which already has the length of 63 will surely break
that limit. I guess the current behaviour is OK, then. I will lieave
it as is.

Thanks for testing this!
