This would seem to make sense based on https://wikitech.wikimedia.org/wiki/Varnish#Force_your_requests_through_a_specific_Varnish_frontend which says that the hash of my IP is the caching key
On further investigation, I think the cache has gone bad or something, because when I switch to wifi (same ISP, but different IPv6 addresses), it seems to work properly.

The problem seems to have indeed gone away overnight. But see #wikimedia-tech logs from around 8-9 UTC.

If possible, I request that this feature request be withdrawn ("WONTFIX"'d) as a significant number of ISPs break this convention, especially for VPS and dedicated server providers.
