Hi Klaus,

This is probably triggered by a very strange behaviour in the BE: if you 
click on view on the left you will see a preview of the page you select. 
But if you then click on a link in the previewed page you will leave the 
preview mode (without TYPO3 telling you) what will result in a 404 error 
because the page is not visible for normal users.
The same go's for news records.

This can easily be solved by enabling showHiddenPages:

admPanel {
    enable {
    	edit = 1
       	preview = 1
       	preview {
            showHiddenPages = 1
        	   showHiddenRecords = 1

kind regards,
