I'm a bit embarrassed to ask this, because it seems like it must be a
FAQ, but I'm stuck.

I have

  (setq org-agenda-skip-scheduled-if-done t)
  (setq org-agenda-skip-deadline-if-done t)

in my .emacs, but there are still many DONE todos in my weekly agenda
(C-c a a)

Can someone give me a hint what I should look for? Have I
misunderstood the documentation?  I am using org-mode 6.16c (debian
unstable package) and emacs 22.2.1

I have the same settings.  The only DONE tasks that show up for me are
the ones with active timestamps.

Most of my tasks use inactive timestamps (in []) but I have the odd one
that uses an active timestamp (in <>) and that stays on my agenda after
it's done.

Could that be your situation?

Yes, that is the case for me too. But if they have inactive
timestamps, they don't show up when they are in state TODO either. So
I guess I am still missing something.

Sorry for the confusion - I meant active timestamps _outside_ of the
DEADLINE: or SCHEDULED: entries.

If I have this:

,----[ test.org ]
| * DONE Some task
|   DEADLINE: <2009-01-10 Sat> CLOSED: [2009-01-17 Sat 16:19]
|   - State "DONE"       [2009-01-17 Sat 16:19]
`----

it does not show up in my agenda when I open that file and do C-c a 1 a

but if I add an active timestamp to it like this it does show up

,----[ test.org ]
| * DONE Some task
|   DEADLINE: <2009-01-10 Sat> CLOSED: [2009-01-17 Sat 16:19]
|   - State "DONE"       [2009-01-17 Sat 16:19]
|   <2009-01-10 Sat>
`----

 as

,----[ agenda  for test.org last week ]
| Week-agenda (W02-W03):
| Saturday   10 January 2009
|   test:       DONE Some task
| Sunday     11 January 2009
| Monday     12 January 2009 W03
| Tuesday    13 January 2009
| Wednesday  14 January 2009
| Thursday   15 January 2009
| Friday     16 January 2009
`----

OK, thanks for explaining things for me. So it looks like I should use
DEADLINE instead of plain timestamps.

That, or also set org-agenda-skip-timestamp-if-done to t.  Before you  
do,
however, I recommend that you go back to the manual and read again
what exactly a plain time stamp, a scheduled, and a deadline entry
are meant to mean.  In particular, check out section 8.3.
