hudson url in configure system populates slave-agent.jnlp

kkmca-2
I was having a problem with the slave agent jnlp - It was populated with incorrect url for my hudson server.

I figured it was getting this information from the configuration so i reviewed my config page and found a form field under "Email Settings" for the Hudson URL.

I changed this url to the one i wanted the slave jnlp to use and viola! the next time i launched the slave it  was configured with the correct location of my hudson server.

Seems like a strange place to pull this information from - I dont really use the email functionality and having the url set correctly did not seem to be important until i realized its use in setting up the master/slave.

Might want to use a different configuration field for populating the slave launcher.

my .02 cents

True. This was a compatibility thing. Kind of.
