I have noticed in my Visitors log that some users are being counted as multiple unique users. Their IP addresses seem to change each time, but tracking each user by IP address alone is not an efficient method of tracking for this very reason. Piwik needs to be able to track a user across the site even if their IP address shifts.
Keywords: ip address, cookies, sessions, duplicates, multiple

@Matt That's great news! The happiest answer to any ticket is that it's already a known issue and is being fixed. I will upgrade to 1.7 beta ASAP.

I also found the original ticket for the fixed issue if you want to add that to the resolution: Ticket 2785
