Symptoms
When the spiders and bots filter is active on a profile - some spiders and bots appear on the reports. For instance when viewing the Spiders report you see entries for "Baidu" even though "baidu" is listed as a spider in the browsers.ini file.
Cause
An issue with the Spiders and Bots exclude filter can sometimes cause known bots to not be excluded during analysis.
Workaround
An explicit exclude filter must be setup to exclude these bots.
