      Description

      After upgrading to Struts 2.3.1.2, we get a Nullpointer when trying to access an undefined action (in example, /badurl.do) - see complete stack below.
      This is because ServletActionContext.getRequest() is NULL when getErrorMessage() gets called.
      This is a major issue because it prevents 404 error to be handled correctly and it affects several websites (just Google for "org.apache.struts2.impl.StrutsActionProxy.getErrorMessage(StrutsActionProxy.java:69)")

      Edit: maybe is it due to the fact I'm using deprecated FilterDispatcher...
