previous questoin... maybe I'm grabbing at straws...

I previously posted a question about getting more information about an error
that we're getting in our Nginx log files.  The error is as follows:

2009/01/15 11:47:57 [error] 15704#0: *689561 open()
"/home/spellcit/public_html/letters/.mp3" failed (2: No such file or
directory), client:, server:, request:
"GET /letters/.mp3 HTTP/1.1", host: ""
What I'm trying to figure out is which php or swf script (or maybe its not a
php or swf script) is actually making the call to request this non-existent

Out of 25,385 errors in our log, 16,952 are caused by this issue.

One of the suggestions I got was to turn on the access logs, which I did.
In looking at this IP address at the access logs, this is what I get, which
unfortunately is not much. - - [15/Jan/2009:12:31:26 -0600] 404 "GET /letters/.mp3
HTTP/1.1" 169 "-" "Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC; en-US; rv:1.0.2)
Gecko/20030208 Netscape/7.02" "-"

I was thinking about creating a dummy ".mp3" file (or rewrite rule) to
capture traffic and get try to get some more info out of the header... just
a thought.

Any suggestions / thoughts would be very much appreciated.
