Honeypot detection and countermeasures

I'm doing some research on honeypot detection, and preventing
honeypots from being detected. I'd greatly appreciate some feedback
from pen-testers on the following issues:

Do you worry about being detected by honeypots?

When you do a pen-test, do you already know of the existence of
honeypots, and their location, so that it is an easy matter to avoid
them?

If you are concerned about honeypots, how do you test to see if the
system under attack is a honeypot or a production machine?

Thanks,
  Larry
