I've just come across a rather odd blocking rule in default.action under the web bug section: /js/slider\.js

Thinking this seemed a rather odd rule I checked my logs and found no legitimate hits and quite a few false positives, examples such as:
False positives:
http://www.apponic.com/js/slider.js
http://www.velovision.com/js/slider.js
http://www.ovt.com/js/slider.js

Probably false positives:
http://maps.level3.com/js/slider.js

Looking at the context in default.action I wonder if it's been included by mistake at some point, as it has no comment or examples around it, and looks like it causes more problems than it solves.
