Routing Error question

Okay, so I’ve customized my error messages with the following in
application.rb:

protected
def rescue_action(exception)
@message = exception.backtrace.join("\n") unless exception
render ‘home/error_404’, :status => 404
end

This works except for when I try to access a controller or action that
doesn’t exist. Then I get a Routing Error on my local development
machine:

==========================
Routing Error

Recognition failed for “/randomness”

and a 500 - Internal Server Error when accessing from a remote machine.

Shouldn’t my rescue_action method capture ALL exceptions? I don’t want
my users ever seeing “500 - Internal Server Error”.
