Why are you trying to serve addresses on the loopback interface ? Try 
removing this subnet declaration and see what happens.

My guess is that the server is seeing that this subnet is attached to 
an aliased interface and is trying to lookup the parameters of the 
base (real) interface it would normally be based on.
