I see in my server logs a thing called googlereload looking for files like "robots.txt?2231335444" and then looking for hundreds more numbered robot files instead of just robots.txt file like they normally do.

It looks like your web server or a web server add-on is putting session information in its URLs. Do you link to robots.txt anywhere on your web site?

Spotted this too. Does not come from the usual suspects of IP addresses.. and the domain is owned by someone in Singapore.

Started with a .htaccess ban on the single IP .. going to watch for it.
