This error comes from different browsers (mozilla, Konqueror, ..) that want to display an icon beside the url (like the logo of ee beside your browser URL).
This icon to display is called favicon.ico and the browser try to get that one from the server, so the browser request it.

The best way to get around that errors is to put a favicon.ico (like a tux, or something else) at that place. It may be also sufficient to make an empty favicon.ico with

touch /home/bob/path/html/path1/favicon.ico
