Right. And what was I trying to actually say here?

Probably that someone either deliberatly tried to access your web site using
some fp-ext-enabled application, or perhaps just slipped on their keyboard.

When I try do press alt+D, to hop to the address bar in Internet Explorer, I
sometimes accidentally whack my F key before the D. That turns into
File->Edit, and with Frontpage as the default editor, that would cause
_vti_bin requests, too.

I make total sense. Just not very often.
