Thank you both Jeffrey and Mickey for your insight and detailed replies. =
 In my excitement at seeing the new release, I didn't look at the =
release notes--apparently this is a recently-isolated issue.  I know I'd =
read the release notes on the previous versions but didn't this time.

As I'm a bit busy at the moment I probably won't experiment with this =
further for a while, but I'm glad the issue is documented so it will be =
clear when the problem is eliminated.  It sounds like there are several =
possible workarounds.

On the Microsoft Loopback Adapter the only protocols that need to be
active are:

 . Client for Microsoft Networks
 . Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4)

Everything else that is installed on the system can be disabled.
