FWIW that is what I have been thinking too. Also those concurrent
access things, at a time when we don't have any users. Only a bot can
do that, I'm thinking.

When I get strange stuff like this at work I am often able to trace it
back to attacks by my own security people trying to break in. They do
so many probes at once it amounts to a denial of service attack. But
hey, they're SECURITY, so it is ok. (:->
