Can somebody confirm that proxy_cache_purge is working with nginx/0.8.34.

I have this config and cannot get it to delete anything from the cache, I just get a 404:

location / {
	proxy_cache		tmpcache;
	proxy_cache_key		"$scheme://$host$request_uri";

location ~ /purge(/.*) {
	deny			all;
	proxy_cache_purge	tmpcache   "$scheme://$host$1";

Thank you.
