#32754: "Global Dashboard" vs "User Dashboard"

 In a multisite installation, when visiting the "user dashboard" (at
 `domain.com/wp-admin/user`), the toolbar menu item says:

 > Global Dashboard

 In my opinion, this is incorrect, because in a multi-network installation,
 each user's dashboard is actually specific to the network it's being
 viewed from for that user, and is not "global" to anything.

 Imagine the following URL's showing two different dashboards:
 * test1.domain.com/wp-admin/user
 * test2.domain.com/wp-admin/user

 Consider that currently, there is no such thing as a global dashboard, and
 if we invent one the user dashboard should not be it. A truly "global"
 dashboard is global to the entire WordPress installation, not to any
 individual user, site, network, etc...
