Unable to set headers with Async http network.request

I'm having trouble posting json data to a webservice using the ansynchronous http network.request call. Seems like the content-type of the body is always "application/x-www-form-urlencoded" regardless of how I try to set the header. I also tried setting the headers on a GET request with no luck.
The documentation on how to pass the parameters is a little ambiguous with regards to params/headers/body. Other than the headers the code below works.
I'm testing in the Corona simulator, build 268.
An http packet sniffer shows the same result as the test webservice.

A sinatra webservice to see what's posted:

require 'rubygems'
require 'sinatra'
require 'json'
 
post '/json' do
  puts "testing json post"
  print "path_info: "; puts request.path_info
  print "content_length: "; puts  request.content_length
  print "media_type: "; puts request.media_type
  print "params.inspect: "; puts params.inspect
  request.body.rewind  # in case someone already read it
  data = JSON.parse(request.body.read.to_s)
  print "data.inspect: "; puts data.inspect
  puts "done."
  "<html>Your response</html>"
end

Tested on the iphone 4 with the same result - just to rule out that it's not the simulator.

u can't do local host on the device
