and what might it be doing?
In my case I am 99% sure it was a google employee surfing from a linux box - it did not get robots.txt and retrieved images, flash etc. and browsed for a couple of minutes like a human surfer.
Yours has a different UA however...hmmm
Hope this helps.
However, as you can see, this acted like a spider. No graphics etc were picked up and the UA is very strange. It is obviously related to Google Technical as this too occured shortly after an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Spiders also don't eat cookies - which this visitor did. My opinion is that it was a Google employee (in my case). I'm sure it was no coincidence after an email to email@example.com .
