Bug Description

I guess system setting checkbox means that this connexion should be made before login. If that's the case (it doesn't work for me by the way, but that's another bug), it should be something more meaningfull like :

"Connect automatically before login"

And should be converted to a radio button (the other checkbox would become "Connect automatically when logging in")

I took it to mean "available to all users".

This option should be clarified in the UI.

Absolutely. I had no idea what this option might do before I found this bug report.
What made it even more difficult is that it is (apparently wrongly) translated to "Systemeinstellungen" (german), which means "System settings" (plural).
At least an explanation should be displayed when you hover your mouse pointer over this setting.
