Hmm... I think so but I will look at this more closely.

That's the original idea. :-) It's not implemented yet just because it 
wasn't high in my priority list for things to implement.

It already does something like that (or part of it) in the "Active 
Connections" tab, on the main window.

Well, it should do that when you show a connection from the "Active

will surely get implemented.

Good catch.

Me too! I want to make it as useful as possible.

Thanks for the feedback.
