See https://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin/issues/659

(I'm opening this topic just to warn those which may be concerned. If this is not the appropriate board, mods don't hesitate to move it)

Does anyone know of an alternative client which does not suffer from any sort of identity leak?

Try running with the -nolisten -noirc flags, see if that works around the problem (and please let me know if it does/doesn't).

I'm not sure any of the current core developers regularly use TOR; getting somebody who does to contribute patches and review code for regressions is a good idea.

How often do you get the chance to work on a potentially world-changing project?

As soon as I can try that I'll tell you.

Not even Theymos? Sad

I can't possibly contribute with C++, it's way beyond my skills, sorry...

Just replicating what I said here, executing bitcoin with the -nolisten flag seems to be a valid workaround for this issue.
