I suspect you may have an inventory or command issue that's reassigning 
localhost's connection type to winrm (you're not adding -c winrm, are you?) 
- this sample works fine for me on both 2.1.1 and devel. The connection: 
local is not necessary, and works fine for me with either local_action or 
delegate_to: localhost. 

There are definitely some issues with cross-connection delegation with 
pseudo-connection-var rewriting when going the other way (delegating from 
Linux hosts to Windows), but this one looks like a busted inventory to me.
