I get almost similar entry, if I hit this on the browser:


It shows like this in the log:

 > (...) - - [24/Feb/2012:11:12:27 +0200] "GET /http://bogus.com 
HTTP/1.1" 404 292 "-" (...)

Only here it starts with a slash (/http...), but in the original log 
entry there was no slash. I'm still curious to know how this log entry 
was born:

 > "GET http://financeande.com/feed/feed.php HTTP/1.1" 404 291 (...)
