We don't see this, John. It works like expected for us.
127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost
in /etc/hosts and if a process is bound to 127.0.0.1 (or localhost) then that's
what it binds to. And if it's bound to * then you can reach it on localhost as
We don't run Zimbra, so I can't tell you about that. but we've had no trouble
with the default config on things like mysql which want to bind only to 127.0.0.1.
But we don't have an "interfaces/0" directory either. Perhaps there's some
conflict there. We changed them to match the actual host interface -
interface/eth0, etc. So you could try changing that and seeing if things work
