[Mailman-Developers] Why are fields initialized with "archive"

This turned out to be a very confused password-auto-enter function on
Chimera (the OS X browser).

I've got Apache protecting my archives with a basic auth, and somehow,
Chimera thinks that belongs in the first field on any page in that path.

Sorry for the bother.
