I have to say that that config you were using seemed extremely
overkill. However, depending on how Magento is designed (and I haven't
heard a lot of positive feedback about it) it could require a lot of
oddball configuration.

What I've realized over the couple years I've been using nginx is that
most people overengineer their configuration. I hardly ever need more
than a few lines of special sauce for anything I've ran in nginx. Of
course, I'm a minimalist.
