Okay, my bad. ngx_chunkin does not support PUT requests yet (The nginx
core goes another route for non-POST requests with chunked encoding.).

I've never tried PUT in my test suite. I'll try fixing it in the next
release. It should be a simple fix in the
ing function. Thanks for the report!

BTW, nginx will still print that error message to error.log even if
ngx_chunkin works. Because nginx aggressively checks this case when it
parses request headers and ngx_chunkin cannot take any action before
that. Commenting out that ngx_log_error line in the nginx core should
work ;)
