Comment (by hovenko):

 The patch attached to this bug report will (at least might) break
 functionality that depends on REMOTE_ADDR. Also it does not handle more
 than one proxy server.

 When using two or more proxy servers you will get a comma separated list
 with all the IP addresses. Eks: "client, proxy1, proxy2".

 Bug report #4602 adds a new function, wp_get_ip_address(), that solves
