Losing POST data on vanilla Ubuntu/nginx/mongrel install

Update on the missing POST data when proxying to mongrel:

This seems crazy, but it seems to me that the problem is related to
having very large, un-rotated nginx log files. I noticed that the
files were getting too large, and removed them (and got logrotate set
up), and now I get my POST data, again.

If anyone could confirm or deny this apparently nonsensical
explanation, that would be appreciated.
