"Content-Type json" header scuppers package POST

Compare these two requests to create a package:

curl http://test.ckan.net/api/rest/package -d '{name:"test"}' -H 'Content-Type: application/json' -H 'X-CKAN-API-KEY: tester'
curl http://test.ckan.net/api/rest/package -d '{name:"test"}' -H 'X-CKAN-API-KEY: tester'

The second one gets the payload through (ckan log):

Retrieving request params: UnicodeMultiDict([('{name:"test"}', u'')])

But the first one causes a ServerError? because the payload (name:"test") doesn't make it to request.POST or request.params:

Retrieving request params: UnicodeMultiDict([])

The only difference is the "ContentType?: application/json" header, which seems a reasonable thing to include. Javascript lib backbone.js (for example) inserts this automatically.

So why does this header cause the payload to not get through to the request object?
