Yes, that is one interesting "feature" of moinmoin which I couldn't
cleanly disable in 1.5 (I haven't tried yet for 1.6).  The problem is
that the wiki is running behind a reverse proxy so it thinks all
requests come from the same IP and triggers the surge protection quite

The "fix" I applied for 1.5 was to delete the surge-log file every
minute (not pretty but it works), but they moved it in 1.6 so the
"fix" didn't work anymore.  I have changed it so hopefully the problem
should be dealt with now.

At some point I will see if the option to disable surge protection
actually works now...

Thanks for the report.
