Well, it seems that users also running eDonkey, produce this request,
probably due to the ed2k pluggins.
It seems that although it generates a lot of access errors, the requested
files are downloaded anyway.

Need to continue to investigate why some users get 404-errors, and some
not, thought first that this was the cause, but obviously not.

Is there a way to make Apache not produce an error when this type of
request happens.


With best regards
