Excellent, I knew it would have a simple answer.
Hopefully there is an as simple fix to the next problem i have
again concerning memcache and proxy

I have a url

i don't cache it, so it passes it to the proxy.
What the page should do is a simple redirect to

If i remove my memcache line, so that everything in location / goes to 
 proxy_pass  http://backend;

it works
If i go direct to the proxy port, it works
However, using my memcache config, it passes it to my /fallback locations and it
stops working. I get a blank page in my browser and it doesn't redirect. I can
check the logs of my backend, and I see exactly the same request either way, it
is just that when i pass it to /fallback, the redirect does not seem to get
passed back to nginx.
