nginx update to 1.18.0 broke my wsl ubuntu 16.04 set up

Does anyone have nginx 1.18.0 running successfully on WSL?

Previous versions have worked fine for me the past couple years as long as
the standard WSL fix "fastcgi_buffering off" was applied.

I just picked up the 1.18.0 update and now I'm back to the old
net::ERR_INCOMPLETE_CHUNKED_ENCODING errors you used to see with large
pages when fastcgi_buffering was on.

Is it possible that as of the 1.18.0 update a different directive is
required to turn fastcgi_buffering off? Or that nginx is now ignoring this

Anyone have any suggestions for me to try? Thanks for any tips!
