We have a bizarre 404

Load this page:

http://www.allacrost.org/staff/jfkdjkafdf

It correctly gives a 404. But, it loads the same content as the home page. It's weird. If the user isn't paying attention to the status codes, or using a browser like Firefox 3 which does not report them anywhere, then they won't even know that they went to a dead link.

Note that this only happens with http://www.allacrost.org/staff/*. Anything else that I've tried, like http://www.allacrost.org/jkldjlfkjda.html works as expected, and you get a user readable error.

Weird. Well I'm too busy to handle something like this right now so maybe someone else can get around to it eventually?

It has to do with drupal installation, which catches everything that does not directly link to a page.

I will try to make it staff.allacrost.org which should no longer cause that problem
