We've had one suggestion so far:
That the iptables forwarding rule from Faravahar's old address might not be preserving the original source address.

Another possibility is that authorities running directory caching proxies are re-using the X-Your-IP-Address-Is header meant for other clients, rather than generating it fresh for every client.

A third possibility is a bug in the tor authority code, which sets X-Your-IP-Address-Is to the wrong IP.
