Hmm, (excuse my pet peeve ;) I'd agree with Bill that this is an
administration problem more than a spider problem... Although, I would
never use, recommend, nor even hint at the existence of a META redirect
(gritting teeth as I type this) many folks do for various (good, bad,

I would not quite do exactly that... Apache's default redirect status
is Temporary (HTTP 302?). You want to have Apache tell the browser that
this is a permanent (HTTP 301) change (in the event of a miracle and the
browser actually follows specs by auto-updating it's bookmarks).
The Apache syntax:
Redirect [status code] url-path url
Redirect Permanent /search/database/index.html
Redirect 301 /search/database/index.html
And, then patching the spider somehow since this may be an issue with
folks indexing servers where they have no control.
