Googlebot behaving badly

The not-so beautiful Googlebot seems to have more issues than anybody could imagine. I've just noticed that Google's crawler got caught in a loop on one of my sites and ended up hitting the sites pretty hard. So I guess I am one of the less than .01% which have problems with a regular Wordpress installation. Well...I heard better excuses...here it is: 1170 66.249.67.41 2654 69.202.83.39

host 66.249.66.167 Name: crawl-66-249-66-167.googlebot.com Address: 66.249.66.167

Now Google has to stay outside :)
