When starting KDE Desktop Sharing (krfb) and creating a personal invitation
then the wrong host IP address is shown. In this example the latest one in the
ifconfig list which is the VMware virtual NAT interface.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install OpenSUSE 11.2
2. Install VMware Workstation
3. Login with KDE
4. Run: Start > Applications > System > Remote Access > Desktop Sharing
5. Select "New Personal Invitation" or "New Email Invitation"
Actual Results:
Personal Invitation / Krfb
Host: 172.16.254.1:5900
Password: XXXXXXXX

Expected Results:
Probably the best is to use the system hostname instead of IP address for
systems with more than one network interface of with virtual interfaces.
