I upgraded to 6.x-1.7 a few days ago and users have started reporting that they are seeing this error on an otherwise blank page intermittently after submitting a form with recaptcha on it:

"For security reasons, you must pass the remote ip to reCAPTCHA"

I saw this which looks related but the fix should already be in the module:
#764796: $_SERVER['REMOTE_ADDR'] incorrectly used when performing validation

Note comment #1 in the linked issue which was not implemented:

Confirming this issue. Seems to affect unauthenticated users mostly.

Reverted patch from #764796: $_SERVER['REMOTE_ADDR'] incorrectly used when performing validation restored normal operation.

The reCaptcha isn't validating because it seems to need the remote ip adress from where the submission was made.

So with this patch that was resolve.

I'm getting the same error with authenticated user.

Applied patch and the problem appears to be solved.

Think a version 1.8 is in order?

I think so. It can lead to users thinking our website is broken and prevent comments, registrations etc.

+1 for a 1.8!
