I found this post 
(http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.comp.web.nginx.english/9526) regarding 
URL encoding, example from the email (e.g. /foo/bar%2Fbaz -> 
/foo/bar/baz). I have a regex location (location ~ /my_url*) for a 
proxy_pass, adding the '/' to the end of the upstream server gives me an 

> "proxy_pass" may not have URI part in location given by regular 
> expression, or inside named location, or inside the "if" statement, or 
> inside the "limit_except" block

Is there any way around this, I need regex in my location and URL 
encoded URLs to work properly.
