Diving in deeper, I see that AbstractAjpProcessor.action() is setting 
the bodyBytes perfectly for the ActionCode.REQ_SET_BODY_REPLAY case here.

After that is done, however, I don't see anything that tries to read 
org.apache.catalina.connector.Request.readPostBody() seems to completely 
ignore this data.

I'm thinking some refactoring in this area completely broke this use 
case at least for the AJP BIO path.  Or can someone offer evidence that 
the breakage is less general than this?
