[Owasp-modsecurity-core-rule-set] ARGS working against PUT?

ARGS should be working on PUT. I wasn’t able to reproduce this problem myself. Would it be possible for you to post the request headers to the mailinglist?

I’m thinking maybe the client is not sending a "Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded” header, so ModSecurity might not be parsing the request body for arguments. But this is just a guess.
