Thanks for these hints. In the end, I had to intercept the fcgi requests
to understand whats going on exactly, and I found that nginx' try_files
resets PATH_INFO [1].

 fastcgi_split_path_info       ^(/cgit/)(.*)$;
 fastcgi_param PATH_INFO $fastcgi_path_info;

did the trick for me, without removing try_files.
