It appears to be something to do with a PHP framework called ThinkPHP.
One of the hits when searching for it is for ThinkPHP on Google Code.

Perhaps there is a vulnerability in ThinkPHP, and this access is from
a machine scanning for vulnerable sites? Just a guess.

I don't think it has a meaning - it's just a 128-bit number expressed in hex.
