some requests no tshowing up in access_log

Hi everybody,

I'm having following setup:

nginx <-unix_socket-> uwsgi -> django

What I noticed is, that some accesses which are successfully forwarded
to uwsgi are NOT logged in my nginx access_log file.

Is this the expected behaviour?
Ideally I would like, that every access is logged by nginx, sucnh, that
I can quickly check how many and which requests were hitting / going
through nginx.

in uwsgi.log I can see:
[pid: 1205|app: 0|req: 537/1453] xx.xx.xx.33 () {40 vars in 1794 bytes}
[Thu Jan 26 18:42:31 2012] POST /my_url/run?var=123 => generated 129
bytes in 94 msecs (HTTP/1.0 200) 3 headers in 174 bytes (1 switches on
core 0)

However I don't see any corresponding request in nginx log.

This is driving me rather crazy while trying to debug some issues.

What could be the reason?

My nginx.conf
worker_processes  2;
events {
    worker_connections  1024;
http {
    include       mime.types;
    default_type  application/octet-stream;

    sendfile        on;
    keepalive_timeout  65;

    include sites-enabled/*;

    uwsgi_temp_path  /etc/uwsgi/;


# sites_enabled/ssl;
# ---------------------------------------
The probably relevant nginx config lines:
upstream django {
    server unix:/var/sock/nginx.sock;

server {
    listen  443;
    server_name  myserver;
    access_log  /var/log/nginx/access.log;
    error_log  /var/log/nginx/error.log;

    ssl                  on;
    # cert info . . . .
    ssl_verify_client optional;
    ssl_session_timeout  5m;
    # cipher info

    location ^~ /static {
        root   /my/static;
        index  index.html index.htm;

    location ^~ /registration {
        uwsgi_pass django;
        uwsgi_param UWSGI_SCHEME https;
        include uwsgi_params;
