Rewrite question - magento in subfolder

I’ve just started trying to get a site of mine switched over to nginx,
and have enjoyed it so far but I’ve come up against a rewrite issue I
haven’t been able to solve easily. We’re running an instance of magento
at the location I’ve followed the nice example at,
although I haven’t been able to adjust it to work in a subfolder.

I’ve tried to modify the main location directive, such that it looks

location /magento {
  rewrite /magento(/index.php)?(.*) /$1 break;
  include /etc/nginx/fastcgi_params;
  fastcgi_param  SCRIPT_FILENAME /home/webapps/magento/index.php$1;

as well as a few variations on that, but with debug output on I’ve seen
that it only seems to modify the document_uri, not the request_uri, such
that document_uri is “/” while request_uri remains “/magento”. I
realize I must be missing something simple, but can anybody give any
pointers on how to remove the leading “/magento” from the request_uri as

nginx 0.7.64, ubuntu 9.10
