  I would suspect from the mmenu1 program accessed by adv1.html and

  Because they are not proceeding through the same path.  Your example
  url http://URL/aardvarkhmmm.jpg resulted in this access log entry:

  " - george [09/Apr/2003:11:48:46 -0400] "GET 
/aardvarkhmmm.jpg HTTP/1.1" 206 12772
"http://URL/adv1.html?PROGRAM=mmenu1&SEL.x=125&SEL....." which clearly
shows a different process is being used to answer the query then when
you access the picture via the local host name.  If the request
http://URL/aardvarkhmmm.jpg went straight to the filesystem and
retrieved the image, it would have worked the same from both urls and
you would not have a referer entry for that access.

  I have no idea what mmenu1 is, or its purpose, but it appears
  to be generating the range request.
