 Well, that's a different story. Apache uses ErrorDocument only when it
 generates the error message itself. It will not override
 application-specific error messages (since this would often result in
 less-useful error messages). The one exception, as Nils points out, is
 that Apache can be configured to override back-end errors when using
 mod_proxy. Your plugin probably doesn't provide that capability.

 That's an entirely different story again. Something along the way is
 yanking out the network connection.
