I have just solved it [1] - just added login_label to username label
with _("Buddy's _username (%s):"). Better alternative would be just
displaying only login_label by _("%s:"), but we would have to remove
"..." from ends of all login_labels in protocol plugins - should I
done it this way. I have also done hidding invidation message for
protocols, which doesn't support it.

Thanks in advance for comments,
