Description

I try to config a reverse proxy server from nginx, in the 'upstream' section, when I set like 'server localhost:8080', It may make a errer 'upstream timed out' in the error.log file.
When I test more, I found that nginx was well for proxy my tomact on 8080 port, but it was bad when proxy a http-server provided by 'web.py'- A python web framework.
If I change the config file that replace the 'localhost' with the IP, all of these will work well.
The version is 1.4.2

Symptoms suggest you may have problems with IPv6 listen in your backend.
