Seems for the servicenow requests that with apache no CONTENT_TYPE is set in the 
environment, but nginx+fcgiwrap has CONTENT_TYPE=''. That makes cgi.FieldStorage 
behave differently as when not available it sets a default content-type of 
"application/x-www-form-urlencoded" which then forces a parse and creates an 
empty list attribute.

I think the way forward would be to force an empty CONTENT_TYPE into the 
environment if it is not already set.
