Thanks for the report.

Indeed, proxy_no_cache is only checked for proper upstream
responses, but not when caching errors, including internally
generated 502/504 in ngx_http_upstream_finalize_request(), and
intercepted errors in ngx_http_upstream_intercept_errors().

Quick look suggests there will be also issues with caching errors
after proxy_cache_bypass (errors won't be cached even if they
should), as well as issues with proxy_cache_max_range_offset after
proxy_cache_bypass (it will be ignored).

This needs cleanup / fixes, added to my TODO list.
