Also check your site's internal links with something like the W3C link checker [validator.w3.org] or similar tool: more often than not there's an internal link pointing to the directory, but without the trailing slash.
petehall, I'd half-noticed that on one of my sites, but looking further you're completely right and it seems generalized. Usualy it's not too bad when you're talking about "genuine" directories (where the server software generates the 301 automatically), but it could be a problem when the directories are done with mod_rewrite and the appropriate rules are not in place for taking into account this problem. One more reason why I like file extensions on rewritten URLs.
