I recently ( < 2 weeks back ) set up a 301 redirect so that the .com 
version (which we don't control) is no longer indexed, but the .net 
version (the real site).  Google reluctantly stopped indexing .com, but 
still is not showing .net for any variation of www.mysite.net.  However, 
other .net files such as www.mysite.com/services.php, bios, etc are 
there in google cache.  I'm also wondering how long this should take.  I 
checked that the redirect is working correctly via several of the 
available header checking tools.
