Can’t disable a product

I am trying to make a configurable product and things are not working as I would have thought:

I have 2 colors: rosewood and natural.
I have created 2 simple products and 1 configurable product to display this

I have marked the visibility of the 2 simple products as being “Search”.  I have marked the 1 configurable product as being “Catalog, Search”

I have cleared my cache both from the admin panel and I deleted the files in var/cache and var/session

The 2 simple products are still showing up.  I have even disabled the two products just to see what would happen and they are still showing up.  Any ideas?

Also, On the left hand navigation the color attribute shows that there are 2 products next to rosewood and 2 next to Natural.  They are counting both the simple and the configurable product.  In reality, this should just be 1 and it should bring up the configurable product.  Any thoughts on how to best solve this problem.
