Cannot disable caching.

Hello, I've been banging my head on this for a day now.

Nginx as caching frontend and Apache as backend on

How it's supposed to be:
1) /i/ is not passed, but served from FS
2) /bsbs/ is passed with NO caching
3) /torrent/ is passed with NO caching
4) Everything else is passed WITH caching

What happens:
1) /i/ is passed to Apache, but cached;
2) /bsbs/ is cached;
3) /torrent/ is NOT cached;
4) Everything else is cached.
5) Also requests to (no end slash) get forwarded to

What am I doing wrong? Tanks in advance.
