It's definitely worth investigating further <wink>.  I just checked my
personal domains and mail.python.org and neither has this problem.
Take a look at the page source, maybe these default values are coming
from your browser?

Nope.  I always try to leave the cvs trunk stable, and I usually run
mail.python.org on very nearly up-to-date.

BTW, I'm just going to update the NEWS file and I'll be releasing b5
