I've noticed a lot of GET directives in my logs from Googlebot/2.1 with double forward slashes, Like GET //page.htm instead of GET /page.htm. Mostly from the bot using HTTP 1.1 and fetching GZIP compressed content.
Anyone else seeing this oddity?
Can you associate it with another robot?
November 22nd had a big burst of GET //'s. Even the home page on a few other days is "GET //".
I'll have to track down this other bot and see if there are buggy links somewhere.
Hah, maybe Google's trying to get// to the //root of the problem!
