mmmmm weird... I tried with one single gem (just in case) and with no
rewrite....a nginx conf as simple as possible.... nothing strange, and
still same problem.

Any ideas what could be wrong? swazoo server works fine... is there
anything known I should do to manage back button when using an external web
