I'm running an incremental update every week on all our campus
web servers. Recently one of our webmasters reported a strange
thing. htdig tries to access a page (which was deleted weeks ago)
and then appends a "/" and tries to access the html file as
a directory. (?)

This happens at least on one web server (Apache) for some 10 pages.
Is this a bug or a feature?
