IE can not display 404 error handling page less than 512 bytes

If you are a system administrator, you will configure 404 error handling page of individual websiites with a few lines say "the URL you typed can not be found in this web, please make sure it is not mistyped". However, IE browser will not display your error handling page if it is less than 512 bytes but with some preset html display of "The page can not be found". No such hassle is found in Firefox.

What IE should impose such a limit? It doesn't make any sense at all.
