Variables on proxy_pass set incorrect request

proxy_pass http://plone/VirtualHostBase/http/$hostname:80/Plone/VirtualHostRoot/;
proxy_http_version 1.1;
proxy_set_header Connection "";
proxy_ignore_headers Expires;


using this the request is passed to the backend always as "/VirtualHostBase/http/".

the location is ignored and the root is always used.

This is expected behaviour. When variables are used in the proxy_pass argument, resulting string is expected to specify full URI of a requested resource, not just a replacement for a part matched by the location. See ticket #803 for some additional details.
