I am running tor, vidalia 0.1.15 on Mandriva with privoxy.  Tor is running and according to vidalia I can see my node and everything else.  If I turn on the torbutton in firefox (and check the proxy settings) and then go to it gives me a nice big "Congratulations" because I'm using tor and then it shows the IP...but it is exactly MY IP.  It isn't covered at all by tor.  So why would this page declare that I'm using tor and then provide me with my actual IP address as evidence?

I then fired up Konqueror and set it to use a proxy and tried again.  Same thing.  What is going on?
