Poor WAN performance - Probing?

Looking at the http requests being sent by appstart on a launch to a server.
(http:\\$webserver$\appstart.exe)
The client keeps sending out GET requests for AppStart.dll even though no such file ever existed and there is no mention of it in the AppStart project.
Eventually it gives up and grabs GETs appstart.exe from the server
I'm confused and because of the multiple get requests for the appstart.dll, so application performance over our WAN is unacceptable.

Anyone ever run into this issue?
