Custom 404 Error page is not respected by Portal 10.1.2.0.2, while the same was respected in 9.0.2.6 Portal.

As a result, when entering an incorrect Portal URL, i.e.
    http://<host>:<port>/portal/page?_pageid=6,1,6_13&_dad=portal&_schema=PORTA

The standard 404 error page is displayed instead if the custom error page.

When accessing an incorrect URL that is not a Portal URL, i.e.
