Your config says

Your log says

Presumably your system resolver resolves the word "localhost" to the
IPv6 address [::1]?

If you change your config to


does it do what you want?

(The alternative, of configuring your system resolver to resolve
"localhost" to the IPv4 address, is probably more work.)

That does not answer the main question you asked; but might resolve the
immediate issue.
