config questions

ok so I still have a couple issues.

1.  Something about my latest config has now broken my javascript loader 
2.  I need to be able to post to, for example, 
/myController/myFormHandler and have it send the $_POST, so just using 
error 404 to redirect to /index.php?q=$1 is not sufficient.

It seems that if I fix one thing it breaks something else.  Here's what 
I've got now:

server {
  listen   81;

  access_log  /var/log/nginx/dev_mysite.access.log;
  error_log /var/log/nginx/dev_mysite.error.log;

  root /home/my_linux_user/www/dev/mysite/trunk/html/public;

  location / {
    rewrite ^(.*)$ /index.php?q=$1;
    index index.php;
    error_page 404 /index.php?q=$1;

  location /style/ {
    rewrite ^/style/(.*)$ /combine.php?type=css&files=$1 last;

  location /javascript/ {
    rewrite ^/javascript/(.*)$ /combine.php?type=javascript&files=$1 last;

  location /tmp/ {

  location /filestore/ {

  location /images/ {

  location /cgi-bin/ {
    root /home/my_linux_user/www/dev/mysite/trunk;
    fastcgi_pass unix:/tmp/cgi.sock;
    include /etc/nginx/perl_fcgiwrap_params;

  location ~* (jpg|jpeg|gif|png|js|css) {
      expires    30d;
      access_log off;

  location ~ \.php$ {
    fastcgi_index index.php;
    fastcgi_param SCRIPT_FILENAME 
#    fastcgi_param SCRIPT_FILENAME 
    include /etc/nginx/fastcgi_params;

  location = /style/main_style.php {
    fastcgi_param SCRIPT_FILENAME 
    include /etc/nginx/fastcgi_params;
