I just caught it happening again, http://www.example.com/index.html indexed with NO links to it at all from anyplace (no page there, it's 404 but there is an index.htm which is redirected).

This happened a couple years back, when an entire site disappeared after the root went AWOL but index.htm could be found. It eventually came back after redirecting index.htm to the root.

I've now got both index.htm and index.html covered, fingers crossed. Here's an older thread that covers the issue with example code.
