That's a false negative. In this case it happens because the Tor relay
exits from a different IP address than it advertises in its descriptor.
The relay in this case is "proxyleaks", and its descriptor says it's
reachable at 184.108.40.206.

The relay is multi-homed in this case: it has multiple IP addresses.
That's perfectly normal, especially for fast relays.
