Did anybody see requests for favicon.ico (no other requests from the same IP are made) in the log files with Google SERP as a referrer? I tried to open this referrer SERP page, but couldn't find my site, not even on the next 5 SERPs.

Sometimes I've seen Google test favicons in experimental search results. That could account for your logs - and the fact that you can't duplicate the search result is not surprising, since you may not be part of that test group.
