    Unhandled error while calling URL with tilde as prefix to any aspx page

    Hi All,
    I have a ASP.NET 1.1 web application with default error page specified in customerror tag in web.config along with error handling code in Application error event in global.asax file.
    Now if a page(.aspx) that does not exist in the application is mentioned in url ,the application redirects to the custom error page mentioned in customerror tag.
    But when a aspx whether it is existing or non existing is called with a tilde as prefix , the application throws an unhandled error.This error is not at all handled by Application error event .
    I did lot of googling and found out that this is a kind of known bug in ASP.NET and MS is aware of it.
    My question is : Is this a really a known bug in ASP.NET ?
    Also is there a good work around to bypass/handle this tilde scenario ?
