Just looking at the text strings in the URLs, my off-the-top-of-my-head
guess was that those were URLs it saw in email spam. They looked very
similar to a lot of the ascii-garbage that gets generated by spammers
trying to get through bayesian filters. It seemed plausible to me (not a
good idea, of course, but the sort of thing that happens) that they might
have been grepping web pages for URLs, and run across an archive of spam.
