[tlug] localhost problem

Hello. I am having a weird problem, since some time ago, and i havent figured out what is wrong.
Some programs doesnt find out localhost is, but somes does.

dnslookup doesnt eventhough a dnslookup to returns localhost.

bash-2.05# nslookup

Name:    localhost

bash-2.05# nslookup localhost

*** can't find localhost: Non-existent host/domain

telnet and lynx and ftp and others get it right, but galeon doesnt.
I have just found its something to do with squid (i run squid and use it as a proxy for galeon and others)
anyone knows a way out of this? my PC also has a private ip and hostname.
And is that behaviour of dnslookup correct?
