Can it be human? I've got one source of human MSIE UAs spanning about a year. Most go on for miles; the short versions are
Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; SV1) and far less often Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; SV1; GTB7.3) Caveat: Most of them are probably the same physical machine, so I don't know how representative this is.
One non-human that sneaked into the same list: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1)

Sounds like a robot to me. ymmv but I generally don't pay much attention to robots that just drift by and pick up the index page. I'm not a front-driven site* so they won't find anything interesting or useful.
* For several years I didn't even have a front page. That is, there was a page called index.html, but it had about two lines of text, no pictures and no links.
