Nginx doesn't cache as expected

Hi, I’m using nginx as a reverse proxy and I’d like to locally cache
files to serve them rather than pass the request to backend servers.
I’m using FreeBSD 7.0 i386 and nginx-0.7.61_1.

I’m using this configuration block:

upstream 1_2_4_backend {
server 172.16.7.121:80;
server 172.16.7.122:80;
server 172.16.7.124:80;
}

server {
server_name blog.leiweb.it;
listen 172.16.7.130:80;
access_log /var/log/nginx/blog_leiweb.log;

location / {
proxy_redirect off;
proxy_pass http://1_2_4_backend;
proxy_store_access user:rw group:rw all:r;
proxy_temp_path /usr/local/tmp;
proxy_store /usr/local/www_ng/$uri#;
proxy_cache_valid 200 10m;
proxy_set_header Host $host;
proxy_set_header X-Real-IP $remote_addr;
proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-For $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for;
}

/usr/local/www_ng/ is populated but if I request a file
(http://blog.leiweb.it/moda/files/2009/08/big_20090716_raphaelyoung2-460x304.jpg)
I see the request always being redirected to backend servers also if
/usr/local/www_ng/moda/files/2009/08/big_20090716_raphaelyoung2-460x304.jpg#
is present (yes, I copied
moda/files/2009/08/big_20090716_raphaelyoung2-460x304.jpg# to
moda/files/2009/08/big_20090716_raphaelyoung2-460x304.jpg to see if it
was a ‘#’ problem, but nginx had the same behaviour).

Here the header content while grabbing that url using curl:

From a backend server:
