The thing you need to check carefully is whether they are metalized film 
or carbon composition.

It does make a difference depending on the circuits they get placed in.

I already have a large stock of metalized film.  However, when going 
through my HRO-50 and replacing grid resistors, I ordered from Mouser 
and ordered all carbon composition.

I have indeed had issues with metalized film.  They indeed DO have an 
inductive element to them.

Standard value 1/2 watt units going for pennies in single unit quantities.  Maybe they are getting out of the market for stuff like this, but might be a good time to stock up.  Don't know where they get their descriptors but they are under 'Passive components',  'resistors',  'through hole'.
