Hi everyone,

I was playing around with the custom DB error page, and found out that  
it gives a 200 OK header by default, even though it, for instance,  
can't connect to the database... Now I can hardcode the error 500 into  
the error page, but my guess is this should be solved or at least  
documented elsewhere? Not giving a 500 error results in the risk of  
search engines indexing your error page...
