there is a lot of open issues with ModSecurity and nginx:

Some of them have been already fixed in nginx_refactoring branch:

I spent some time experimenting with this branch locally,
and added a number of improvements to the code:

A number of patches were already imported into SpiderLabs/nginx_refactoring
repository, others are under review and testing.

Please feel free to try - any feedback will be greatly appreciated!
