[PROXYPER] What's happening to my 304?

I've wracked my brains for 2 days and can't work out what the
problem is - so I'm open to any suggestions here.

I've been running 304 for about a week without probs. This proxy
servers a few home machines, a few work machines, and a few
people outside my network.

About 2 days ago I started getting repeated attempts to connect
from a particular IP. But the connection was never successful. This
is repeated every second or so. To give an idea of the traffic this
is generating, before this happened my daily 304 console logs were
between 2 and 2.5 MB. Yesterday it was 8 MB. Todays ended up at
just under 14 MB. There is no corresponding increase
in the blocks fetched or flushed.

I tried an IgnoredIP line in the ini which stopped him connecting, but
didn't stop it trying. Then after several hours, he switched to a diff
IP (twice). I don't really want to ignore a whole Class C subnet, and
I've now removed the IgnoredIP's.

With the frequency and persistence,  I suspect it must be another
personal proxy trying to connect but is somehow failing. I tried
shutting down the proxy, unlocking and repairing buff files just in
case the problem was mine, but it didn't make any difference -
besides from what I can see, all other clients and IP's have no
problems.

I've included a few lines from the console output if that helps.
