404 is blank when unknown file types are requested.

404 page only fires for a few specific file types, or for 'directories', but not for unknown file types (or perceived perceived file types). PHP, Joomla, IIS.

To be clear, it isn't that our script doesn't work when it gets fed an .asp url - the 404 page never shows up at all - just a blank page. Everything works fine on my local instance of IIS.
It seems likely to me that there is an inclusive list of file-types somewhere that is being used, and that sucks. Where is it? How can I make it suck less?
I am a front end guy, but the back end guys will do what I need them to do if I am able to tell them what I need them to do. This is a fairly large organization, with fairly byzantine reasons for everything, but suffice to say: this needs to be done with a client side script and not a Joomla extension, the server platform is IIS, the Joomla version is 1.7.
