How does --proxy-mode help?

I see there is a server option --proxy-mode that is intended to "Enable correct behavior when behind a reverse proxy". We have been running OpenERP behind a proxy without this option, and it sees to work fine. What would you expect a user would see failing when this option is not used?

I tracked it into server/openerp/service/wsgi_server.py Line 421

And werkzeug.pocoo.org/docs/contrib/fixers/?highlight=proxyfix#werkzeug.contrib.fixers.ProxyFix

I would like to know as well. My OpenErp instance is behind an nginx reverse proxy with SSL and I have this this flag turned on. For the longest time is was off and it seems to work fine.

We were having problems because the new user invitation email contained a link with the internal port number in it. When the new user received the invitation email, he/she needed to edit the signup link, and strip the port number out of it. The --proxy-mode startup option fixed that.
