It would be nice if the password dialog didn't state that the password is 
"guest at associate.com".  Not to mention having better wording (correct 
grammar).  This is what users are instructed to do by the dialog...I 
quote:

Enter username for name=guest
password=guest at associate.com

That makes a whole hell of a lot of sense.  I fought with the damn thing 
for about 10 minutes before getting frustrated and filing it in the 
"stupid server tricks" category.  I wouldn't have gone back if I hadn't 
read this thread.
