WMS requests for maps that were never asked for.

While testing the transparency/WMS bug, I looked in the logs for the WMS.
For some reason during this period of changing transparency, QGIS had requested a couple of small, 120*120 maps that are very zoomed out - so kind of like overview maps. I don't have an overview map in QGIS; I didn't even know that was possible.

I've attached the section of log files. The two anomalous requests are for height=120.

I think this may be for the legend icon.

These requests are GetMap requests, a legend is a GetLegendGraphic.

Not really. Those are probably requests to build the preview image that are shown in the legend/layer tree (maybe with reprojection applied). You can disable that with Create raster icons (may be slow) on the canvas & legend page in the options.
