This is expected - as auth request is to "/auth_http.php", and 
there is no query string in the subrequest.  If you want to check 
original request arguments, you have to check them explicitly.

Assuming default fastcgi_param configuration and php, original 
request URI (with original query string aka request arguments) 
should be available via $_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'].
