I agree that it's strange to see robots.txt in any search results at all, even site: operator - but what problem is this causing you?

It surely shouldn't be in the main index.
It appears in Google results because someone, somewhere, once linked to it - and may still do so.

I have one better..my sitemap is ranking. saw it today researching long tail for this site. It is #7 for green widgets texas..lol..and the particular page for green widgets on my site is marked supplemental..go figure.

i don't have any problem tedster if my competitors robots.txt maraked as supplemental not mine,
i think g1smd has point to say that if some one can linked to your robots.txt and it can be crawled by robots than may be marked as supplemental result
but does that mean like if i will linked your robots.txt to my site on home page and my site is under supplemental result than offcourse it will show as robots.txt supplementals
can u tell me in detail about the advantages and disadvantages of having robots.txt marked as supplementalresults

There are no advantages or disadvantages. It just is.

Ranking changes for other urls on your site are extremely unlikely - unless your robots.txt also has proper html links in it, and that's pretty non-standard.

10,000,000 robot.txt listings throughout various google SERP results just clutters results.

That should be robots.txt
i see the whitehouse's ranking well for the inurl:robots.txt search :p
