[maplab-users] disappearing hostname while trying to create a new map.

two ideas:

1. the values of the $_SERVER array are used to compose this URL and 
these values are gathered from the web server.  We know of differences 
between IIS and Apache in this respect, so it is not suprising that 
there would be problems with other web servers.  Please send me a copy 
of the output from <? phpinfo(); ?>  and I will check it.

2. please try the latest nightly build of maplab, we have been working 
on quite a few bug fixes and while I can't bring anything to mind, it 
seems to me that we may have fixed an issue like this recently.
