So my question is - Is Google ever going to give up on this page?
No. Google never forgets an URL. They will slow down after a while though.
And yes, I've got 404s that are linked either from nowhere at all-- at least, nowhere that g### will admit to-- or only from pages that are themselves 404s. Or 410. Sigh.
