Windows Live caught ignoring robots.txt

I have for almost a year banned robots from indexing cgi-bin files windows live is still showing links to my banner rotation software complete with a cache.

This is a direct violation of the robot.txt standard.

Also as in the last post the formatting of the windows live search results is confusing users because only the title is hot linked and the url is not hot linked making it very inviting to click on the cache link.
