wordpress infinite redirect bug

I am proxying wordpress as follows, to a machine called "wordpress".

ProxyPass / http://wordpress/
ProxyPassReverse / http://wordpress/

I can fix the infinite redirect by changing the name of the destination server. But, that would be a hack. What I really would like, is for wordpress to act in a reasonable way, by not requiring that the requested host name is the same as my domain name configured in the options. If this is not fixed, no body will be able to proxy, for instance to

Other possibilities are if hosting providers do proxying without it being configurable. This would prevent the user from fixing the problem.

Most people would not be able to figure this out. As such, it should be a fairly high priority.
