Unable to pass Process Properties to Boomi via REST API. Any advice?

I want to run a Boomi Process via the REST API, and this process requires Process Property values to be included. However, after trying many different options, I cannot get Boomi to recognize my process properties.

Here's the XML I'm sending via cURL:
<ProcessExecutionRequest processId="processid" atomId="atomid" xmlns="http://api.platform.boomi.com/">
    <ProcessProperties>
      <ProcessProperty>
        <Name>StartDateTime</Name>
        <Value>2013-09-01T00:00:00.000Z</Value>
      </ProcessProperty>
      <ProcessProperty>
        <Name>EndDateTime</Name>
        <Value>2013-09-30T00:00:00.000Z</Value>
      </ProcessProperty>
    </ProcessProperties>
</ProcessExecutionRequest>

     This runs the process just fine. However, never for the dates specified. I've tried many different flavors of this XML and have also tried it using the boomi-ruby gem, but with no luck. Even if I provide junk process property names (that don't actually exist in Boomi), the Process just runs using the default process property settings that I entered in the UI.

     Any advice or help is greatly appreciated.
