    Default Default admin username upon login

    UT 10 allows for changing the "admin" username to something else. I have done this but every time i am logging in the default "admin" username is already listed in the username box. I would like to have nothing listed, and if i choose to let my browser store the login credentials to make that work (doesn't seem to work now because of username already specified by default).

    P.S. i think changing the username to something else adds some security because it will make a brute force password attempt more difficult. Off course this is only a part of a layered security approach but nonetheless it is still usefull in my opinion.

    Ah so i'm not the only one, but this is reported end of 2010 already. I hope this doesn't mean that it is "known" forever but never actually fixed ;-) I think it is a small change to fix it and that it will help security and user satisfaction.
