this works in mozilla, not in IE (bug)

I am assuming this is a bug, I didn't test it.  It should work though.

again, this works in mozilla, not in IE (bug).  In mozilla, the current 
server is selected.  If there is no server, then the first element of 
the list is selected ... for just this purpose.

I don't intend to change this to a button.

I've filed these in bugzilla:


but you don't seem to be registered in bugzilla so I couldn't add you as 
a cc.

General Note for Everyone On The List:
