User names in server log files

Our Web site is running on Microsoft Windows Server 2003. I occasionally open some of our log files to read the user names of people that access a certain file on our Web site.
One of the User names displays as "www.domain.com/username" rather than "username." Why does this happen? Most of the user names show up as "username."

Are you using NT Authentication or Digest Authentication to force users to login with?

Going to take a stab at this.
www.domain.com/username <-- This entry was done by IE and your server is setup to use Digest Authentication. I remember reading something way back when about this and why it does it, but the the life of me I can't remember what the reason was or when it was wrote.
