Default 221(g) refusal for H1B - what next ?

I had 221(g) refusal for my H1-B application in Jan-1998.
After several attempts to submit required documents, did
not succeed, I gave up.

I found another job in my home coutry. The new company
wanted me to send to US for business trip. But my B1 visa
got rejected on 214(b) twice (in the same year).

Now, I am working for a US based fortune-100 company in
Japan for the last 1 and half years.

Now, my question is, suppose if I ever need to travel to
US for business/personal purpose, will my visa gets
refused because, once upon a time I had applied for H1
visa ??

Is this 221(g) refusal permanent ?? ..

I searched web and found out that, 221(g) refusals for
IV cases gets terminated under 203(g) after one year,
but there is no such termination for NIV applications.

Does this mean, petition based NIV applications (like
H1B), if refused under 221(g) are "permanent" ???
Or, next time when I apply for B1/B2 visa
with all documents showing 'strong' ties to my home
country, what are the chances that it gets accepted ?

I really dont have any intention of immigration or
even staying in US.. All my concern is, if at all,
I have to travel on business purpose, I should be
able to do that - otherwise, it will remain as hurdle
in my career all my life.

You should probably consult a lawyer. Theoretically, no application refusal should
be permanent. However, the immigration clerks has an easy decision to make if they
see that visa was denied before. This is the problem. However, I have seen one
person who was able to obtain visa after refusal (don't know category) after several
years' of trying.
