in my ".htaccess" file I have a few rules of this type:
RewriteRule /linklist.html /links.html [R=301,L]
Bingbot and MSNBot (frequently) and Google (once in a while) keep looking for the file "linklist.html" (and the other old files), although the rules have been in place for several months. One of the pages redirected in this manner even shows up in the search engine results still!
