$document_root points to wrong location when one location directive (which handles .php files) is applied to another location which has a specific root/alias set. See the following config. The outcome is strange because regular files are served correctly from the aliased/new root path for this particular location but what is passed on to PHP appears wrong.

The documentation says:
root or alias directive's value for the current request

events {
    worker_connections  1024;
	server {
		listen       80;
		server_name  localhost;
		root /www/;
		index none;
		autoindex on;

		location ~* \.php$
			location ~ \..*/.*\.php$ {return 404;}
			include        fastcgi_params;
			fastcgi_param  SCRIPT_FILENAME  $document_root$fastcgi_script_name; 
		location /rg/
			root   /tm/dh/;
# if the following is specified FCGI gets the .php files inside this block
# else it looks at the root mentioned in server block
#			location ~* \.php$
#			{
#				fastcgi_pass;
#				include        fastcgi_params;
#				fastcgi_param  SCRIPT_FILENAME  $document_root$fastcgi_script_name;
#			}

Unless you uncomment "location ~* \.php$" inside "location /rg/", with your config all php files are processed in "location ~* \.php$" specified at server level, with root set to "/www/" (and $document_root will resolve to "/www/" as well). This is correct and expected behaviour, see
