I didn't see that here. It seemed to work fine - though it sure would
be nice if it would dynamically move the nodes around. Restarting
pgAdmin to see the changes doesn't feel nice. It also feels like I
should be able to right-click a group node, though I appreciate you
cannot do that with the Servers node either.

Finally (I think!) - it seems weird that the Servers node lists the
total number of Servers, even those that aren't direct children.

Y'know - as I type I can't help thinking that the correct way to do
this is to consider the root node to be the group, in which we
currently have a single, fixed group called 'Servers'. Additional
groups would then be additional root nodes... but I don't know if you
can do that on all operating systems.

Yeah, I saw that.

BTW - I noticed another issue while I was there. The default colour
shown by the colour select button seems to be random, so for servers
for which I never previously chose a colour updating them to set a
group is also changing them to a random colour, unless I manually
choose that too.
