Why do Inside and Outside Rear Brake Pads Wear Differently

On changing my W126 rear brake pads I noticed a significant wear difference ... the outside pads were worn out and the insides looked like they could go another 100K. It was the same on both sides ...

There is likely a good reason for the difference in wear - I suspect it may not even be related to a problem?
