One thing pageoneresults mentioned that made me remember that Slurp will also try to fetch the default document if the URL is in subdirectory:
it will try
http://www.example.com/directory/ is the same content as http://www.example.com/directory is there a duplicate content issue on Yahoo SERP?
So, that SEO firm was probably doing that for a reason.
Something to think about...
