I would still like to know if it's happening constantly or not,
though... It could be harmless (or a optimization opportunity for your
bans) or it could be something else. Most likely it's the former.

Do you have any bans?

Like PHK says, it's the ban-lurker saying "hi", but it should only do
that if you have bans on your ban list that do not use "obj" but "req".
