There's a MS knowledge-base report about this behaviour, apparently the IE
plugininterface will cause 3 (sometimes 2) calls to the server to be made
for each page request.
This affects the PDF and SVG plugin - I'm not sure about others...
This wasn't on my list today, but I could find the KB if needed.

I guess that's why many sites make you pass through a gateway to download a
file, logging that will be more accurate.
