After pouring a pint with my new beer line, it suddenly occurs to me that the same beer might have had some off flavors with the old tap line. There was a similiar thread here in the last week (whose title I can't remember), which did make me realize I hadn't cleaned it in well over a year.

Now, I may just have the brewing equivalent of hypochondria...

I keep a cornie of BLC solution in my keggerator. When a keg is done, or I don't plan on drinking a certain beer for a while, I'll blow the BLC through the line.

Frequency? About once a week.

I would say the lines should be cleaned monthly if you're a stickler for cleanliness, and certainly no less often than every few months.

Run some blc through between every keg on tap. Probably 2-3 times a year I take the taps apart and clean them with Oxiclean.
