I think the problem may be that you're using a realurl-generated path
to the 404 page instead of just identifying it by its *actual* URL:
/index.php?id=123. If you think about it, there is no good reason to
use the realurl path to refer to an error page since the error page is
NEVER requested by that path, and is only ever shown at the requested
(but nonexistent) url.
