Page Not Found in ImageField iframe

I have a problem with the ImageField that I can't seem to solve.

I've made a SiteConfig-decorator to add an ImageField where the site admin can upload a banner to use on their site. This works great in the test environment but fails on the live server. What I get in the iframe is a Page Not Found instead if the image upload form.

The url loaded in the iframe looks like this; and if I load it in the browser I get the Page Not Found error. But if I append a ? to the url the form loads perfectly fine. So I've hit a dead end.

I've searched for solutions and tried the one posted [url=]here[/url], but it didn't help.

I'm not sure if it's of any help, but the live server configuration is
Apache: 2.2.22
PHP: 5.2.17
SilverStripe: 2.4.5 but I've tested the latest from (2.4.7 i believe) with the same result

I've found something out that makes me believe that this is not a SS issue but rather some kind of server configuration that plays hide and seek with me.

By dumping the $url passed to Director at the end of main.php I've found out that if I visit
the url is 406.shtml
but if I append anything whether it be / or ? the url passed is admin/RootForm/field/SiteLogo/iframe/ the field is rendered as it should be.

The quick solution in my case is to append a / to the iframe url in FileIframeField but if anyone has a clue where I can start to hunt this error down I'm all ears.
