Rust!

OK, I feel sick. I have arthritis, have not shot my Browning x bolt in a couple of years. I distinctly remember wiping the gun down with Remoil and a rag before putting it away. When I took it out of it's case today (an expensive one that supposedly prevents rust) it had surface rust on the underside of the barrel in front of the forend. Yes, it is pitted. I've wiped it down again with Rem cleaner and Remoil, and it looks a lot less noticeable, but the surface is still rough, and the rust is obviously still there. What did I do wrong, and what move do I take next?
I do not recall getting it wet. It's stored in a spare bedroom, in a locker type safe. There was no excess humidity. I don't get it.
