[mod_python] Returned filename question

I was just checking my apache access_log to see if and how the spidering
by Google was going and I found some strange behavior I cannot explain:

cat /var/log/httpd/access_log |grep Googlebot

all the lines I see are like: - - [01/Jan/2007:15:43:54 +0100] "GET /zsswsirofodgrdu.html
HTTP/1.1" 404 298 "-" "Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; Googlebot/2.1;

Please note the: GET /zsswsirofodgrdu.html

I am seeing this since I upgraded to MP 3.3.0b, I have searched the DOCs
but for some reason I cannot find out where Google gets the filename


One other Interesting thing is that since I started to compile MP myself
(not using standard installed or RMP versions). The creation of .pyc
(and or .pyo) files stopped working. I have read some articles in the
mailinglist archives I found about that, but they seem to be protection
related, and I have not changed a bit other than an upgrade to Python
2.5 and then an upgrade of MP to 3.3.0b, any suggestions?
