Strange Google referal

Just checked my serverlogs and I found this one:

[toolbar.google.com...] (23 hits)

Any idea what this is?

You get that page after you set preferences and something goes wrong - 'return' should take you to the page you were on before, but if there is an error then you get this page:

I got this when I tried to save my preferences in IE and it tried to open them up in Mozilla (I think)!

OK, if you go to toolbar options in IE then normally you get taken to the page you were on before you hit options. However, I went to the options on a blank page (no referring page) and the toolbar was supposed to bounce me to googl.com in this instance. But instead something went wrong and I got the error. Probably to do with me messing around with my browsers to make them do better things ;)
