Bug in HttpSslModule?

Hi all,

I think I've found a bug in the HttpSslModule. We're running Rails 
(Passenger) with Nginx and need to check if the current request is SSL. 
To do this, Rails needs "HTTPS: on" set in the environment.

In our nginx.conf, using the preferred syntax "listen 443 default ssl;" 
does not set this correctly. However, "listen 443; ssl on;" does. I 
haven't found any other reports of this problem. Most examples of 
nginx+rails+ssl use the old syntax.
