Good that you found the fix -- and that your nginx config was correct
all along.

Interesting -- had you tested this with a "normal" browser, you
probably would have seen it working right away.

The normal advice to "use curl to avoid hiding all of the things that
browsers hide" will probably be modified to note "make sure your shell
does not interfere with the request url".
