​Is this a misconfiguration on my part or is this just a spam bot hitting a bad url?

Hi cruser,
I have no idea, I've not seen this problem before.
The URL there isn't one that you should be using for an IPN call as it may not return to the chronoform ipn event.
I would probably add some logging code to the IPN event to capture any IPN calls to a database table or a file so that you can take a look and see exactly what is happening.

What ipn should I be using? What is in the form is {url.full:ipn}

Looks like you have a malformed URL. Can you post the code that generates the URL you're telling the IPN to access?

In the "Setup" section of the form I have the PayPal redirect. The IPN notify URL is this code (I believe was default so I did not change it) {url.full:ipn}. The return URL after completion is {url.full:complete}
Am I supposed to set up urls in another section? Perhaps my form is incomplete?

No idea, possibly just do what Bob said and add some logging logic to your IPN event
