If I read it right, that suggests that your fastcgi server pays attention
to the first SCRIPT_FILENAME parameter it gets, in contrast to the php
built-in fastcgi server which pays attention to the last one it gets.

So an alternative config could have been to use the original
fastcgi_params file; but to add your own SCRIPT_FILENAME line above,
rather than below, the include line.

What you have now, sending exactly one fastcgi SCRIPT_FILENAME parameter,
is best because it should work for any fastcgi server.

(Your original config might have worked if you used a different fastcgi

All the best,
