We're sitting in the same boat. I have tried everything you did but
haven't gotten much farther. I did put this snippet of code into my
localconf.php file and got the default page error insted of having 
realUrl direct the user to the next highest level....

  'postVarSets' => array(
          '_DEFAULT' => array(
  );// this is the end of the main RealUrl array from way up


I went into the install tool to try and configure the 404 page but it 
didn't work either. Are you using 3.8.0? I find a lot of little things 
are different than what the documentation describes. Let me know if you 
get any further.
