Using /review (on SF), I came across a post that should have been on the meta site. I clicked through to use the new flag->doesn't belong dialog, but then the auto-redirect kicked in and I was on the meta site! The question had already been migrated, which is why it was closed on the /review for the parent main site.

Link copied from question title in /review:

There is a slight timing issue here, if a post is deleted it may show up in /review for 10 minutes to an hour due to caching. Bumping the /review cache every time a post is deleted may be a bit expensive.

I will look to see if we can bounce stuff off the list once deleted, it may through off paging a bit.

    The post I linked was migrated Dec 23rd, 2010 and so I assumed that migrated question were never removed from the /review. I've got no problem with the cache taking a while to catch up.
