I will look into this, but I'm unlikely to port it back to the 1.1 tree so
if you want it there (1.2 is a while off yet) I will give you a few 

- The users IP address (if the network is TS6) is already stored
  in client_p->user->ip.  This is the only trustable source for the IP
  address, and DNS lookups really shouldn't be used.  If you really do need
  this on a TS5 network, then my recommendation is to do the DNS lookup
  when the user connects in c_nick() instead.

- The cidr.c I have added into trunk should give you the IP matching code in
  an elegant and tested form.  match_ips() will match the cidr mask against
  the IP, match_cidr() isn't really suitable in this situation.

  See: http://ircd.ratbox.org/cgi-bin/index.cgi?rev=25052&view=rev

Any questions, let me know.
