Things are expected to work regardless of "fastcgi_buffering" 
being on or off.  And the error suggests that there is something wrong 
with the setup.  Instead of trying to work around the problem with 
"fastcgi_buffering", it might be a good idea to actually dig into 
what goes wrong and why the error appears.  In particular, looking 
into error log might be a good idea.

Once the underlying problem is understood, you'll be able to fix 
it properly, without involving magic like "the standard WSL fix".  
And the proper fix is expected to work with any nginx version.
