See https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/ticket/9969 for one case.

I wonder if these are clients running Tor versions from back before we
did directory fetches tunnelled over the ORPort -- clients from that long
ago would launch quite a few requests to the DirPort of various relays,
and since we disabled the v2 directory status documents, maybe there's
a bug where they keep asking if they don't have anything they like.
