I would guess this has everything to do with how the updated docs are deployed 
and little or nothing about the cleanliness of the working area.  The mkhowto 
script should be cleaning out the old HTML before generating the new.  I'm 
guessing the deployment simply unpacks the new on top of the old; the old 
should be removed first.

For the /dev/ area, I don't think redirects are warranted.  I'd rather see the 
crawlers just not bother with that, since those are more likely decoys than 
usable end-user docs.
