[thelist] problem with customized 404 and php

i just switched a client's site over to php (all files now ending in 
.php) and set up a customized 404 page (amending the .htaccess file) to 
catch everyone coming there via old bookmarks and links.  this works 
fine for requests looking for directories or html files but not for php 

eg. http://dissens.de/doesntexist
and http://dissens.de/doesntexist.html
get caught by my customized 404

but http://dissens.de/doesntexist.php ends up at the host's default 
error page.

does anybody have a clue why it would do that?
