Spam control is misconfigured and rejects all anonymous bug reports

It appears that if an attempt is made to submit a new ticket without logging in the following error is thrown:
Trac Error Submission rejected as potential spam (BlogSpam says content is spam (badip:state/blacklist.d/127.0.0.1))
According to IRC and searches this problem has been occurring for quite a while.
This is a particularly bad problem as it discourages new people from submitting bug reports. (As demonstrated by reading mailing list posts.)
Depending on the browser it potentially leads to data-loss of the report also.
It seems like the actual remote IP of the creator isn't being passed on to the BlogSpam functionality correctly so localhost (127.0.0.1) is being used instead.
If this configuration can not be fixed then IMO Trac should be configured to require log in before submission of new tickets.
