Check how do you allocate URI as passed to the 
ngx_http_internal_redirect() function.  I suspect you are using 
stack or other temporary allocated buffer there, and this is what 
causes the problem: as long as the buffer is overwritten, 
everything is broken.  Instead, you should allocate the URI string 
as passed to ngx_http_internal_redirect() from the request memory 
pool, so it will not be rewritten till the request is freed.
