It should be easy to test. Define fastcgi_param SERVER_ADDR as a constant (say your real IP) in your fastcgi_params file and see what's passed in phpinfo. 

BTW, a similar  bug appeared before and I pulled my hair out over it. Igor did subsequently fix it in 0.7.20.  It's in the changelog.

i would think it's nginx's fastcgi, not php's fastcgi.

nginx's told to fastcgi_param SERVER_ADDR the same, and the version of
nginx changed, nothing else - PHP didn't, etc. so the problem from
that angle is localized to something on the nginx side.
