Denis - please try now, with my apologies. It's all my fault.

Sorry that the mystery is actually so uninteresting, but the answer is
that I do have to blacklist a few addresses/ranges -- spiders that don't
respect robots.txt and try to crawl our entire svn tree (with all
history), which is just too much. I don't have any foolproof way of
detecting them, and I wrongly added to the list at one
point. --sorry, karl.
