I use rewriting on my site and Google is finding pages that do not exist. I thought maybe it was an error in my rewriting somewhere but i've gone through my site pretty thoroughly and cannot find the links. i am running a spider - xenu - on my site now to hope that it can find the links. but does anyone else see anything like this and know how to find where google picks up the links it's crawling?

I accidentally just found the mistake about 5 minutes ago... A reason I strongly push for if you want something done right, you have to do it yourself... I had one of my developers generate a Google Sitemap for me which he was improperly concatenating the URLs for the this subcategory and thus the errant links in the sitemap - usually Google lets you know about bad links in the sitemap. Thanks for everyones time and sorry to have wasted it...
