[bittorrent] Peers sending a handshake of 48 bytes

I have a weird problem, it appears that some clients only send a
handshake of 48 bytes, they just don't include a peer id. Which is
fine for me, I don't use the PeerID for much, but it's not exactly
according to the protocol.

Does anybody know which client is doing this, and why it is doing this
? Is this some extension to the protocol which I'm not aware of ?
