Google but not Googlebot

Just hit my spider trap
UA: mozilla/5.0 (windows; u; windows nt 5.1; en-us; rv:18.104.22.168) gecko/20060508
IP lookup says Google Inc.
Any ideas? Don't know what going on.

Did you analyze its behavior to see if it looked like a bot or a human? That's gonna be the only real way to tell what this user agent was doing.
My guess would be it was just a Google employee surfing your site with Firefox.
The only thing that makes me wonder if I'm correct is it fell into a spider trap.

GWA = Google Web Accelerator
Googlebot doesn't need an accelerator.

I guess thats it. It's going to fall into my trap every time. I'm going to have to give this some thought as to whether to block it or not. I don't want to block, but my spider trap works great.
