htaccess + 404 leads to ignoring of custom error documents

    Our custom error documents are defined globally as follows:
    Alias /cust_err_doc/ "/var/http/"
    ErrorDocument 301 /cust_err_doc/errors/301.php
    ErrorDocument 302 /cust_err_doc/errors/302.php
    ErrorDocument 400 /cust_err_doc/errors/400.php
    ErrorDocument 404 /cust_err_doc/errors/404.php
    ErrorDocument 403 /cust_err_doc/errors/403.php
    ErrorDocument 500 /cust_err_doc/errors/500.php
    When for example the following htaccess is in place and index.php is missing, the custom 404 error gets ignored and shows the default one (with LiteSpeed signature):
    RewriteEngine on
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteCond %{http_host} ^domain.tld [nc]
    RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://www.domain.tld/$1 [r=301,nc]
    RewriteRule ^cms$ /cms/ [r=301,nc]
    RewriteRule ^(en|fr|nl)?/?([a-z0-9\-/_]+)?(.htm)?$ /index.php?ls=$1&page=$2
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI}   !^/plugins/
    RewriteRule .html$ /index.php?ls=en&page=
    ErrorDocument 404 /page-not-found.htm

    If "/page-not-found.htm" does not exist, LSWS will show the default error page.
    Either remove

    ErrorDocument 404 /page-not-found.htm

    or make it available.
