My site stats show that goolebot (crawl-66-249-66-244.googlebot.com) has crawled one of my pages for nearly 10 minutes at 3 crawls every second. It comes to nearly 10*60*3 = 1800? crawls on a single page.
Has googlebot gone crazy.. Does it have any meaning?

I had this problem a while back, Gbot was requesting an image on my site 1000's of times a day. I contacted them and they reuested a copy of my log entries. I was thanked for my feedback and it stopped a few hours later, no harm done. I was worried that it might affect googlebot coming back to my site in future but it's been fine.
There is a link in the entry that googlebot leaves in your logs, on that page you'll find out how to contact them.
