Perhaps I wasn't clear, but all the other applications can resolve
"localhost" correctly. I can ping localhost, ssh to localhost,
cvs client can connect to localhost, and all of them resolve
to just fine.

If I read the past postings correctly, the person who
reported this problem before also wrote the same thing.

And I don't think this is "patching around the problem".
This is just making things easier for everyone. I'm pretty
sure "localhost" is expected to resolve to
everywhere, and thus changing the default from "localhost"
to "" is very unlikely to cause a problem.
