Default Mains capacitor job?

Been implementing a Dada upgrade kit to my Quad 44 pre amp, this all went well and it performs superbly.
A capacitor which wasn't covered was one across the mains switch in the power supply unit. I dismantled it and found the 0.047 Rifa slightly swollen and splitting! Time for a change.
I have a replacement on the way but am curious to know it's job across the mains? it appears to have a resistor involved in it's construction.
