I have tired of this "if (-f $request_filename)" pattern.
This became the same ugly pattern as Apache's Auth directives usage in
.htaccess only and lot of RewriteRule's to compencate inability
of PHP programmers to work with URIs different from /index.php.

You should use ^~ in "location ^~ /accounts":

    location ^~ /accounts {
        root /u/apps/asdf/shared;

And remove the useless "if (-f $request_filename)" in static location:

    location ~* \.(js|css|jpg|jpeg|gif|png|swf)$ {
        expires      1M;
