Yahoo have problems with a 301?

I have had 301 redirects on numerous pages within my site for 4 to 5 months.

Google seems to have picked up on this, but Yahoo continues to try and index the pages.

Does anyone know if Yahoo has trouble with 301 redirects?

I have had 301's for just shy of a year and yahoo still (daily) requests a good assortment of the old page names.

For the longest time, starting a few weeks after the switch we were not to be found on yahoo (and msn), and then about 9 months into it they did an update and we were everywhere. Quite frankly had I known the amount of lag built in there from the getgo I would have been more inclined to take sitematch seriously
