Recently, seems it has been changed how the token is set on AJAX calls.
Before, the ajaxSetup() methos was used.
Now, the beforeSend callback is used.

The problem is with the contentType, which is set to text/plain.
Why? Because at the time that is set, during ajaxSetup, the there was no payload, defaulting to text/plain.

Solution, is a bit wide.

Use $.ajaxPrefilter() instead of $.ajaxSetup({beforeSend: ...}) to add the CSRF token because beforeSend is
executed after the content type is determined. So, if the request had no data when beforeSend is executed,
the content type is 'text/plain', which is wrong.

I can confirm that it works smothlessly.
Are there any chances that this will go to the Master branch?
