ends up with an blank page. With status code 200 :-(

There are reasons the things are the way they are. Due to
virtual file system we needed another way to synchronize with
our development enviroment and CVS. This sounds like a workaround,
not a solution, and this workaround is not available for us.

I maybe have an idea for another workaround, redirecting to a
not available (in VFS) resource, so a "real" 404 is sent, but
I have not tried, because, I'll say again and again, I believe,
this is a bug in OpenCms and it should be fixed.
