Thanks. I was going to search the Perl script, but now you have provided me
with the answer.
I had a wave of 404's (bad inbound link) which made things hard to
interpret. I made the 404 a redirection for a couple of days (Apache
re-directs wouldn't work because the link contained '<br />'), but couldn't
avoid the status reported.
