Uhm, r->header_in is an internal buffer used during header 
reading/parsing.  It may occasinally happen to contain parts of 
request body if it happened to be read with headers, but it's not 
something one may use to access body data.

If you need to access body data - you should use 
ngx_http_read_client_request_body() function and r->request_body 
in it's callback.
