Example 1 (OK)

location / {
	root /path1;
	try_files $uri /index.html;

GET / - all ok, i see /index.html content
GET /nofile - all ok, i see /index.html content

Example 2 (BUG)

location / {
	set $todir /path1;
	if ( $cookie_test = 1 ) {
		set $todir /path2;
	root $todir;
	try_files $uri /index.html;

GET / - all ok, i see /index.html content
GET /nofile - 404 not found. Where try_files to /index.html redirect? In log:

*1 open() "/path1/nofile" failed (2: No such file or directory)

Seems try_files directive don't works in this case. But why?
