I think I found the problem but I am not sure. Some time ago I changed the 
names (URL's) of several pages including the ergonomics page. At one point I 
was working on my htaccess redirects and wanted quick access to that page. 
On my local drive I renamed the htaccess file with a period in front of it 
so it would be first in the list of files - .htaccess .Then, at some point, 
I uploaded the .htaccess file without loosing the period.

My thought is that Google might not have picked up on the redirect because 
of the htaccess file name. On the other hand, Yahoo and MSN seems to have 
picked up on that page without a problem. I think that the permanent 
redirect was picked up for most of the pages but for some reason, Google may 
not have caught it early enough so when I uploaded the bad name, it still 
had not gotten to that particular redirect.

Does that seem possible?
