[ic] inactive items - flypage still works for them.

In products.mysql I have the line:
Database products HIDE_FIELD inactive
This works fine, in that all inactive products are excluded from any
searches. However, if I manually type in the flypage URL for an inactive
product then it *does* appear.
I suppose I could manually test for the inactive flag on the flypage and
bounce the user to the "missing" page, or alternatively, display an "Out of
stock" message. But I was wondering if there was an easier way - shouldn't
"HIDE_FIELD inactive" prevent the product from being viewable anywhere? I
would like to make it physically impossible for a customer to view or
purchase a product that has been made inactive.
I'd be grateful for any suggested solutions.
