Anyone else spot this from Yahoo? Lots of 403's

I've been noticing this for a while now from the Yahoo Slurp robot. The actually try the directory names for data and they get a 403. Almost looks like they are searching for "hidden data" that is not pointed to by any html page. Like this: www.domainname.TLD/directory/

Then what looks like a human with a Firefox browser tried the same sort of URL for a 403.

I know some misconfigured web servers will actually give you a directory list with a URL like above.
