Comment (by cypherpunks):

 Replying to [comment:1 yawning]:
 > The client's tor instance doesn't actually ever see the IP address when
 it connects to a FQDN, which is why `` is returned.  So this would
 be moderately annoying to fix, because it's an extra SOCKS request at a
 minimum (assuming `RESOLVE` works as expected).

 Ok, so I can understand why it wouldn't show the real remote address if
 the client doesn't see the DNS response, but it also shows it as
 even when browsing directly to an IP URL (see screenshot).
