Swift as backend for Glance HTTP 500 error

Hello everyone;

I have configured Glance to use Swift as a backend storage service, however I cannot upload image using glance image-create command. Following error occures:

    [root@openstack182 images]# glance image-create --name="Cirros 0.3.1" --disk-format=qcow2 --container-format bare < cirros-0.3.1-x86_64-disk.img
Request returned failure status.
500 Internal Server Error
The server has either erred or is incapable of performing the requested operation.
    (HTTP 500)

This seems strange to me because Glance works correctly using files as a storage ( default_store = file ). Swift also works ok, I can upload files to containers using swift upload command. My configuration files are as follows:

glance-api.conf

[DEFAULT]
# Show more verbose log output (sets INFO log level output)
#verbose = False

# Show debugging output in logs (sets DEBUG log level output)
#debug = False

# Which backend scheme should Glance use by default is not specified
# in a request to add a new image to Glance? Known schemes are determined
# by the known_stores option below.
# Default: 'file'
default_store = swift

# currently known to glance at startup.

I am out of new ideas. Does anybody have any clue what might be wrong.
