I just tried the bookmarking idea with both Firefox and Internet
Explorer. In each case, I went to a page and an anchor in the middle, and
bookmarked. I then closed the browser, reopened, and selected the
bookmark.  In each case, the correct display appeared.  In neither case
did the anchor (#ZZZ) appear in the httpd log.  Since my CGI sends 403 if
it sees #ZZZ, we can safely assume that the browsers did not send it.

The occasional appearance of #ZZZ in my logs therefore still remains
a mystery.  By the way, I can duplicate it if I use nc on another
Linux box to send an (in)appropriate GET.
