I thought that might be it. It's just that my LocalSettings.php says nothing
about $wgBlockOpenProxies = true or anything like that.

I might have a workaround. Do you recommend removing $wgProxyKey and/or

How if I explicitly set $wgBlockOpenProxies = false?

I'll remember that: EditPage.php. Comment out the proxy-check call...yes, I'll
do that.

On our wiki, we do not permit anonymous editing. Everyone who wants to edit,

proxies, or about spoofing. I don't care if they come in via a proxy--so long
as they authenticate themselves with us.
