That sounds good to me, as I can't understand why Windows would be different
here either.

While looking at this, I stumbled across the following code in

        ## AJ: We change 'localhost' to '' to force Medusa to use
        ## any network interface instead of using only This is
        ## a not totally clean solution :-/ See also Collector #1507.
        if os.name == 'posix' and 'localhost' in hostname.lower():
            hostname = ''

2 things struck me:
* 'localhost' in hostname.lower() appears odd - I would expect ==.
* that we probably want to do that for windows too

As the comments explicitly reference 1507 and the code references
'localhost', it may be worth examining too.
