Comment(by manuq):

 Reported upstream: https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=692291

 Replacing 'localhost' with '' also works, and that is the default
 of SimpleHTTPServer:

 [manuq at localhost ~]$ python -m SimpleHTTPServer
 Serving HTTP on port 8000 ...

 and Wikipedia uses the default.  So I wonder if it is better to change
 Wikipedia accordingly.  Anyways this doesn't invalid the 'localhost' name
 resolution bug.
