Sorry, this was just an artifact.
I noticed my ESSID was in plain text,
and reasoned that ILUG is probably full of teenage hackers,
who will sit outside my house trying to get onto my network.
I just didn't notice the ESSID appeared twice!
My ESSID is not really "secret",
and I don't have a user "guest" with password "guest" either.
