The reason has been in the same e-mail above. Here is a copy:

The change has been appeared due to Mongrel-type configuration:

location / {
    try_files      /system/maintenance.html
                   $uri  $uri/index.html  $uri.html

location @mogrel {
    proxy_pass     http://mongrel;

when "/" exists, but /index.html is not exist, then request was handled
locally and return 403.
