0.7.61: error_page 404 woes

I'm having a problem with the error_page directive.

What I want is to redirect people who try to access a nonexistent page
to the home page of the site. Following
http://wiki.nginx.org/NginxHttpCoreModule#error_page , I configured

error_page	404	/;

But this statement had no effect. I had to re-write the statement as

error_page	404	http://$server_name/;

to get the desired effect, but don't quite understand, why.


Kind regards,
