I use custom post type, and when users make a comment on page
they are redirected to
www.mysite.com/2013/01/20/post-name/#comment-2231 [e.g. without /custom-type/]. So they get 404.
In all other pages and posts (that is not custom type), the redirecting after commenting works well.
What is the problem?

Does this happen if you use a default theme? – s_ha_dum Jan 29 '13 at 14:53
@s_ha_dum I dont know, and I can not try it, because the site must be working all the time with the current theme... – s976 Jan 29 '13 at 15:04
Don't you have a development install? Highly recommended especially since this site is so critical you can't take it down for three minutes it would take to swap themes and test this. Sorry, but this is going to be very difficult if you can't debug. If the comment form is the only place this happens, I expect that your theme has an comment form that isn't cooperative but it is hard to say. Could be a plugin too. Again, hard to say. – s_ha_dum Jan 29 '13 at 15:17
@s_ha_dum. Thank you. I have found what was the problem: In custom post registration, I used slug in russian 'rewrite' => array( 'slug' => 'темы' ),. And it seems, that it is nod good for wordpress. Now I changed it to english, and it works. May be it's a bug... – s976 Jan 29 '13 at 15:45
