Since you made me aware of ifconfig I had a look at the man page which
"Ifconfig  is  used to configure the kernel-resident network interfaces"

Does this perhaps mean that on this kernel,
linux-image-2.6.20-13-generic version 2.6.20-13.21, which is the latest
available version, the localhost is not kernel-resident?
