I'm not sure exactly how to reproduce this, but arma and I both got this separately within about 20 minutes of each other.

When you visit check.tpo, it says "Your IP address appears to be X". And separately, "For more information about this relay, see: [Atlas]", but when you click on this link, it shows a relay that is not X.

me: check said, but atlas link was to
arma: check said, but atlas link was to

Thanks for reporting. This is a duplicate of #10499.

What's happening is that TorDNSEL is conflating IPs with the wrong nodes,
and check needs to remember IPs it has seen from relays in the past.

From the data at metrics.tpo, we see many incorrectly assigned exit addresses.

Karsten suggested a fix of linking to atlas' search for the IP, rather than directly to a fingerprint. This has the bonus of solving the case where multiple nodes are hosted on the same IP.
