tomcat binds to IP addresses it is configured not to bind to

           Summary: tomcat binds to IP addresses it is configured not to
                    bind to
           Product: Tomcat 4
           Version: 4.0.4 Final
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: Other
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Blocker
          Priority: Other
         Component: Connector:Coyote HTTP/1.1
        AssignedTo: tomcat-dev@jakarta.apache.org
        ReportedBy: minfrin@sharp.fm


The "address" parameter to the HTTP/1.1 connector is supposed to tell Tomcat to
bind to a specific IP address. This worked fine in v4.0.3. In v4.0.4 Tomcat
binds to all available addresses on the machine, even when told not to. This
enables a Tomcat protected by the proxy to be bypassable, which is a security issue.

This same problem exists on both the old HTTP/1.1 connector, and the new Coyote
HTTP/1.1 connector.

Has this option been renamed and the docs not updated?
