Is the macine otherwise (that is, outside of Tomcat) able to perform a
reverse lookup of the IP?  Because if the reverse lookup fails, Tomcat
will just log the IP.

Otherwise, if it's a true Tomcat bug, it's unlikely it will be fixed in
an official release: v4.0.x is now two revisions behind the current
version (5.0.x).
