I am having trouble with a location regular expression.

location ~* ^/(library|conf|appg) {
>   return 403;
> }

It is my understanding the following regular expression should match any uri
starting with library, conf or appg. However, this is not the case.

For instance.


will match fine where as


wont match (causing the file to be downloaded)

Am I doing something inherently wrong or is this a bug in Nginx?
