I think you've all missed the netmask there, is in that range.

augie at augnix:~$ sudo ifconfig lo:1 netmask

augie at augnix:~$ ifconfig lo:1
lo:1      Link encap:Local Loopback
          inet addr:  Mask:

augie at augnix:~$ ping -c 1
PING ( 56(84) bytes of data.
64 bytes from icmp_seq=1 ttl=64 time=0.027 ms

--- ping statistics ---
1 packets transmitted, 1 received, 0% packet loss, time 0ms

Given all that, can anyone suggest a reason why Bind won't listen on
that address?
