I don't know if that's a problem caused only by Opera, I found that 'bug'
surfing with IE (6.0) too.
Trying to acces diffrent web pages, some of them listed my real IP address
insted of proxy address.
(e.g. trying to make an account at www.ifriends.com).
It might be a 'bug' in Opera/IE or a 'high security' web page.
