Hmm, as Julian mentioned, this is probably a side-effect of how IE/Explorer 
handle WebDAV displays.
Microsoft provides a Shell extension to display WebDAV folders, e.g., when 
using the Network Neighborhood to browse to a WebDAV folder.
My assumption is that this gets triggered when you double-click a WebDAV 
folder in IE. You would probably need to do some registry magic to avoid 
this (and that would have other side-effects.)
