[TYPO3-english] ics_awstats not logging properly

Hi everyone,

I have been running ics_awstats and ics_web_awstats for many years on many TYPO3 installs, without issue ... or so I thought! A few days ago, a client tells me they wanted to see traffic to a specific page but when they went to the "Pages-URL" section of AWStats, there was nothing there. My kneejerk reaction was, "there's nothing there because nobody has visited", however when I look at raw server logs (separate from the log file created by ics_awstats) and go to the page with my IP, I can clearly see there is traffic to the page. Moreover, when I look at the log file created by ics_awstats, my IP will sometimes show up and sometimes not. For example, I just went to the site and clicked on 3 links ... but looking at the ics_awstats log there's nothing there. 

I apologize if my explanation is confusing, but that's exactly how I feel with a system that should just "work"!

Any advice you have is greatly appreciated,
