Those dialogs only happen if the browser is Javascript enabled.  Needless to
say, the robots don't execute the Javascript code. For the future, you'll
probably want to password-protect MythWeb.  It's also a good idea to put a
robots.txt file at the top level of your web server's document tree.  For
details, look here: http://www.robotstxt.org/wc/robots.html

Finally, I strongly recommend not having your MythWeb installation exposed
directly to the Internet.  That invites all kinds of trouble.
