Error log strangeness

Filed under: T2 — 19:35 Sun 28 May 06

From the cpanel error log:
File does not exist: /home/t2/public_html/wordpress/[L]
File does not exist: /home/t2/public_html/upgrade/upgrade_es.php
File does not exist: /home/t2/public_html/index.php
All the above exist and all are present.

The .htaccess covering the /wordpress directory:
<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /wordpress/
RewriteRule ^(.+).html?$ /$1.php [r=301,nc,l]
</IfModule>

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !^http://(.+\.)?tamba2\.org\.uk/ [NC]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !^$
RewriteRule .*\.(jpe?g|gif|bmp|png)$ [L]

But if that is the cause then why the root 404? I’ve got 15380 404’s being served. A variety of IP addresses. Might be a coincidence but the spammers are knocking on the door a fair amount today.
Why are the above 404 and what’s with the [L] ?

File does not exist: /home/tamba2/public_html/wordpress/style2.css
That HAS moved so someone somewhere is hotlinking again…….

Update:
The error with [L] at the end is coming from here: 83.31.115.10 (Poland) and sometimes at the rate of 4 errors a second it seems. Also here: 83.144.109.104 (Poland), 80.53.228.242 (Poland), 58.241.84.185 (Beijing), 222.185.26.246 (Jiangsu), 60.3.129.126 (Hebei – China), 219.150.158.86 (Guandong) 222.81.149.32 (Xinjiang) and many other IPs. Spammers I assume? What’s with this [L] though?

And this IP was chucking tons of spam at me 81.177.140.237 until it got placed into the .htaccess for a while.
