198.18.0.0/15 is reserved and in use by home routers
A user showed up in #tor to ask for help with Tor determining its address incorrectly. Tor published 198.18.0.2 as his/her/its relay's IP address, even though that was not his public IP address.
According to whois, IETF RFC 2544 reserved 198.18.0.0/15:

Tor should recognize addresses in that netblock as internal.
This is a potential security issue for users who run exit nodes behind screwy home routers which use that netblock for their private addresses.
