Wrong error 404 handling
The extension counts more Error-404-PIs than might have been caused by Frontend users in fact. A incorrect @import rule at the TYPO3 4.2 backend stylesheet (/typo3/stylesheet.css) caused hundreds of 404-PIs a month. After fixing the defective link, the counts went down to a normal quantity.
The listed error page PIs do not really correspond to the Backend user activity in these periods. Also they represent only a part of all 404 errors listed in error_log.

This bug should be gone in the current version.
Before version 0.4.0 pageviews from some robots have been counted. That means a user agent identifying itself as “Mozilla/5.0” (or 4.0 or 3.0) will has been counted as a human visitor, not as a robot.
This is fixed and should fix also the problem of pageviews of pageviews of the 404 page counted as visits.
Maybe this is related to your problem.
Do you still expierence that problem?
