We recently launched and all bots and users handle this fine except Yahoo Slurp. For some reason it sometimes (not always) adds an extra slash to the request which is the 404-ed.
http://example.com/my-url - Right
http://example.com/my-url/ - Slurp request
There are no links pointing to the page with an ending slash. I am curious as to if this will hurt us (or perhaps help, if it is testing this)? Any ideas?
I could have the handler 301 to the non slash URL but it could result in a 301 to a 404. Is that seen as an issue?

This happens all the time on my site:
