OK. I could be wrong, but I think the last time this was brought up, I
asked for a trace from htdig -vvv to see why it's hitting HTTP unless it
can't find a file.

Now if you want to know why it can't ignore broken links when doing
filesystem digging, that's a different matter (I'll add a config option if
this is an issue). But it shouldn't need to hit HTTP.
