I have looked through the complete history regarding this host, and none 
of the other documents have ever been fetched. The only thing I can see 
is an illegal robots.txt file:
robots parse
	HTML 	0 	1 	Robots file contained HTML, skipped

I don't think this robots file has stopped MCF from crawling the other 
documents since I can see this entry in the our test environment as 
well. I even tried to disable robots.txt checks, but the problems persist.

I forgot to mention that the hopcount mode is "Keep unreachable 
documents, forever"

So, if I understand you correctly, there is no point of hacking the 
database since MCF will try to refetch unreachable documents anyway. I 
can of course enable HttpClient logging and check whether MCF tries to 
fetch these resources at all.
