[horde] Query strings in admin/config/config.php not working

Hey Folks,

recently, I upgraded horde and its applications to the most recent
versions. I now have problems with the configuration links in the
Administration->Configuration menu.

They are pointing e.g. to /admin/config/config.php?app=horde but nginx
responds with 404 not found.

The responsible directive in my nginx config looks like this:

location ~ /admin/config {
    location ~ \.php {
        include /etc/nginx/includes/horde-fastcgi;


include /etc/nginx/fastcgi_params;
fastcgi_param PATH_INFO $fastcgi_path_info;
fastcgi_param PATH_TRANSLATED $document_root$fastcgi_path_info;
fastcgi_param PHP_VALUE "cgi.fix_pathinfo=1";
fastcgi_param PHP_VALUE "include_path=/opt/horde/pear/php";
fastcgi_pass unix:/var/run/php5-fpm.sock;
fastcgi_index index.php;
fastcgi_read_timeout 7000;
fastcgi_param SCRIPT_FILENAME $document_root$fastcgi_script_name;

and the fastcgi_params:

fastcgi_param  QUERY_STRING       $query_string;
fastcgi_param  REQUEST_METHOD     $request_method;
fastcgi_param  CONTENT_TYPE       $content_type;
fastcgi_param  CONTENT_LENGTH     $content_length;

fastcgi_param  SCRIPT_NAME        $fastcgi_script_name;
fastcgi_param  REQUEST_URI        $request_uri;
fastcgi_param  DOCUMENT_URI       $document_uri;
fastcgi_param  DOCUMENT_ROOT      $document_root;
fastcgi_param  SERVER_PROTOCOL    $server_protocol;
fastcgi_param  HTTPS              $https if_not_empty;

fastcgi_param  GATEWAY_INTERFACE  CGI/1.1;
fastcgi_param  SERVER_SOFTWARE    nginx/$nginx_version;

fastcgi_param  REMOTE_ADDR        $remote_addr;
fastcgi_param  REMOTE_PORT        $remote_port;
fastcgi_param  SERVER_ADDR        $server_addr;
fastcgi_param  SERVER_PORT        $server_port;
fastcgi_param  SERVER_NAME        $server_name;

# PHP only, required if PHP was built with --enable-force-cgi-redirect
fastcgi_param  REDIRECT_STATUS    200;

Any ideas what could be wrong with my setup and why this did work before?

Best wishes
