This isn't directly possible - but you can edit the hts-
cache/new.ndx file (which is a text file) using notepad or 
vi, search for the bogus html filename, and alter its name 
to something that won't be used (for example, replace 
the /bar/foo.html occurence by XXXXXXXXXXXXXX) ; and then 
save the file.

BTW, how bogus is the file? (missing data? currupted data?)
