It may be the only path to ground for the power supply and measuring the
voltage across it may be the way to measure current from the power supply.

A 10 ohm resistor with 1 volt measure across it represents 100ma current.
This is common practice for the way I measure power supply current.

BTW I found this really neat site with some good info on power supplies
Hats off to Tony, I0JX

I am having some quality time with my new supply and have lots of 
questions about things I do not understand.

First one is, this is a choke input with a pair of 4mf's across the 
output of the choke and a monster 100k bleeder.

What bothers me is that there is a 10 ohm, many watt resistor between 
the negative side of the caps and ground.

What is this for?
