Same as other nodes - Add xxx etc. It's not that important though.

There's something pretty broken. I'm not sure how to describe it
though... see if you can make sense of this!

- I edited a server. It had picked up my 'custom' group correctly, but
also had a blank entry in the list. I expected to see the default
'Servers' there.
- I moved the server to 'blank'. Nothing seemed to happen.
- I looked at the properties for the server again. Now I only have 2
blank groups listed.
- I restarted pgAdmin. Now I have 2 identical servers under 'Servers'.

What I would expect to see is:

- Any existing servers automatically get moved into the 'Servers'
group on first run of the new version.
- Any new servers default to the first group in the combo box. This
will obviously be 'Servers' on a new installation.
- The Servers group is merely a default that's always available.
Otherwise it is no different from any other group.
