proxy_ignore_client_abort ignored

Is 'proxy_ignore_client_abort' ignored when either 'proxy_cache' or
'proxy_store' is set?
I have tried setting it to 'on' and 'off', but nginx/0.9.4 continues
to download large files even after the requesting client has already

The documentation at doesn't mention any exceptions to
when 'proxy_ignore_client_abort' may be used.

Server block configuration:
server {
server_name nginx.home;

location / {
  root /usr/local/www/nginx_cache/files;
  try_files "/id=$arg_id.itag=$arg_itag" @proxy;
location @proxy {
  proxy_pass http://$host$request_uri;
  proxy_ignore_client_abort off;
  proxy_temp_path "/usr/local/www/nginx_cache/tmp";
  proxy_store "/usr/local/www/nginx_cache/files/id=$arg_id.itag=$arg_itag";
  # Tested with 'proxy_cache' as well.
# ... default location = /50x.html ...
