question about proxy_store

I am having problems with proxy being unable to store pages that do
not have a file extension (such as a directory or "nice url").

1. User requests
2. nginx looks in the root, can not find the page.
3. nginx uses the error page, which then calls a proxy pass inside a location
4. nginx fetches the page.
5. nginx cannot save the results, because it is /page/hello/
   nginx does create the /page/hello/ directory inside the proxy_store
directory though.


It could very well be a problem with my configuration. It works for
urls with file extensions.

        location ^~ /fetch/ {
            include  proxy.conf;
            proxy_set_header  X-Real-IP $remote_addr;
            proxy_store /var/www/data/$uri;
            proxy_store_access user:rw group:rw all:r;

        location / {
            root /var/www/data/;
            error_page 404 = /fetch$uri;
