Google Toolbar showing their own 404 page?

Since last update I don't see my own 404 anymore

My Google toolbar just got updated. And guess what, when checking one of my own sites' 404 page, instead of seeing my own page Google shows me THEIR 404-ish page.

It kindly advises me to search for something else (on the WEB) since what I was looking for apparently cannot be found.

It appears that since the last update they just switched on some kind of "navigation errors suggestions" (or something similar in English) option.

If I would like to see Google's 404 page instead of mine, or someone else's, I would like to make the choice MYSELF.

Is anyone else experiencing this?

Yet another sign that Google needs more revenues and therefore more search traffic if you ask me.

Very, VERY sad to experience.
