Does anyone know what "MS Search 4.0 Robot" is? I'm seeing hundreds of hits from various addresses in the 131.107.3.* and 207.46.137.* range - these all seem to resolve to tide[nn].microsoft.com.

Sample log entries, slightly edited:

example.com 207.46.137.9 - - [20/Aug/2002:03:28:44 +1000] "GET /foo/bar/1 HTTP/1.0" 200 38538 "-" "Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT; MS Search 4.0 Robot)"
example.com 131.107.3.85 - - [20/Aug/2002:03:28:50 +1000] "GET /foo/bar/2 HTTP/1.0" 200 50701 "-" "Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT; MS Search 4.0 Robot)"
example.com 131.107.3.83 - - [20/Aug/2002:03:29:05 +1000] "GET /foo/bar/3 HTTP/1.0" 200 38053 "-" "Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT; MS Search 4.0 Robot)"
