    I sent a ticket in. Cpanel staff members don't seem to know what it's for either. The guy that helped me told me he'd forward the ticket on to the developers. That was a few weeks ago, though. Still no word.

    It may have been doing it for weeks but if you haven't added an account for "weeks" you would have no idea.
