Bug Description

This is a very minor bug, but still important. The title says it all: When you open the "Setup Sync. Services" window, it is created with a title "gtg", which looks like a placeholder that was never properly replaced.

Great catch! Would you like to change it to something more meaningful? Easy way to have a commit in GTG :)

Well there doesn't seem to be a standard way in which an application's
secondary window's titles are written, but I think keeping the following
format is an elegant solution: <application name> - <window title>.
The <application name> is a variable already defined in this case (I
would think it is "Getting Things GNOME!"), and a good <window title>
would be "Synchronization Services".

However, if you take a look at GTG's main window, the format <window
title> - <application name> is used; which I think is also good and
worth sticking to.

In other words, "Synchronization Services - Getting Things GNOME!" would
be my candidate :)

Should I create a branch in the ~gtg-user group to fix this bug?

Hi I've solved this 'bug' adding a constant in BackendsDialog and setting the title variable of the self.dialog to "Synchronization Services - Getting Things GNOME!". The branch is here https://code.launchpad.net/~gtg-user/gtg/bugfix-1002067.
